MP in Valencia, Juan Carlos Moragues (PP) says a cigarette not put out properly is believed to be the cause of the first fire which started at the viewing point in Benitatxell and sparks from this ignited the others in the chain which destroyed 879 hectares and forced the evacuation of 1,400 residents.
He criticised the regional government for claiming it was the work of arsonists, saying ‘speculation’ merely hinders investigations.
