Ruiz explained that most of the reports come from the dry arc, which includes the districts of Los Santos, Guararé, Las Tablas, and Pedasí.

He said explained that the intense sun, combined with the strong breeze, is one of the main variables that affect the number of cases. "The wind causes these fires to spread rapidly and affects not only the flora but also the fauna of the areas reached," he said.
