A local resident called 9-1-1 when he saw the smoke.

Apparently the informal taxi driver reported that he was leaving with a fare to the area, but he did not provide details to the dispatcher.

At about 5:45 p.m., on the Rio Sucio bridge, police apprehended a suspect, who came out wet from one of the banana plantations in the area. No details were provided to the press.
