Yesterday there was very large fire in the mountains above Praiano, which has fortunately been put out by three squads of the vigili del fuoco (fire department) from Salerno and Maiori. The impressive photos above of the fire are by Francesco Fusco and are from the news updates on the Positano News website here and here. Massimo Capodanno has incredibly shots of the fire here and here on his blog Positano MY LIFE. This one taken from his house in Positano is particularly scary since you can see just how close the fire was to Praiano in the distance. It has been dry and windy here the past few days, and yesterday was especially windy. I am not sure the cause of the fire, but the wind certainly didn’t help. I am very glad to hear the fire has been put out!
