An intentional fire on Pinel

The fire was necessary to burn the excess vegetation collected after the passage of hurricane Gonzalo in October 2014, as the debris was too massive – around 100 cubic meters – to allow natural deterioration. With firemen at hand, and help from local restaurateurs, this impressive monticule was reduced to ashes.
