Torreguadiaro fire starter is accused of seven others in the area

CAMPO DE GIBRALTAR The San Enrique de Guadiaro man who was arrested on June 24 and charged with the fire that caused havoc in Torreguadiaro earlier that month, has been charged with setting a fire in San Martín del Tesorillo, in the municipality of Jimena. The judge sent the man to prison but he was released on bail on June 26. According to the Guardia Civil, to whom the alleged pyromaniac is well know, he proceeded to steal a motorbike in Secadero (Casares) last Friday. He rode off to the Montenegral area of Tesorillo where he supposedly started a fire in an area known as Pista de los Americanos, which contains several homes. This fire burned down some two hectares. Having left the motorbike close by, the man was arrested shortly after the fire was put out thanks to his being named and identified by several witnesses. He is now 'at the disposal of the courts' accused of a total of seven fires, all of them during June. Aside from this last one, these include one in Secadero on June 7; another on the A-2102 road at San Enrique, on the 16th; the one at Torreguadiaro reported here, on June 19; another two set on that same day, on the Arenillas road, between Sotogrande and Castellar, and the other at Tesorillo.
