According to Mayor Roberto Gualtieri’s spokesperson, it is the work of arsonists, claiming it is a deliberate as well as sustained attempt to start fires to harm the city government as well as the new mayor.

Along with this, an investigation will have to show whether it concerns individual perpetrators or organised crime.

Four buildings were evacuated as a precaution. As per the sources, 130 families live there.

Other people were advised to keep doors as well as windows closed and to wear a mouth mask on the street. In addition, the smoke from the junkyards may have been toxic.

Moreover, the fire is now reportedly under control after a special fire truck from Ciampino Airport was deployed.
