According to Dayan Contreras, spokesperson for the Bomberos de Costa Rica, the fires that had spread to more than a kilometre into the mountains of Escazu, north of San Antonio and into Alajuelita, was fully under control by this morning.


Contreras added that there are still some small fires burning, but are not spreading.

Wild fires or brush fires that can quickly turn into major fires are due to the dry weather condition common throughout the country at this time of year.

This dry season has been particularly difficult for the Bomberos, with the Tuesday fire, the number of major wild fires is up to seven for this year.
