thanks to youtube user ichicax4: if anyone cares to translate the actual words spoken in this video, It would be much appreciated!

The phenomenon appeared, paradoxically, with the last downpour when a girl was burned with a piece of land was burning under his feet.

Trying to locate the root of the flames have not found anything, just more fire and more smoke, as Tilve says Antonio, a member of this community.

The area has been cordoned off by authorities while trying to environmental agencies to establish the causes of this strange phenomenon where the earth burns.

The Committee for Prevention and Attention of Disasters, made up of several District agencies on alert at the odd smoke and fire, which remains concerned at least 15 families living in the sector.
