According to Granma newspaper, three and seventy-six fire took place in the country, but there were less areas affected.
The National Week for Fire Protection 2012 , sponsored by the Cuban Ranger Corps during the drought season, made evident its effectiveness in these first five months of the year.
A better organizing level for the organisms and the forces of the system of forest fires protection made possible this achievement, as well as the beginning of rains in the second part of April.
However, spite of the reduction of fires, the national expenses increase to more than 8 million of Cuban pesos, so that it´s necessary to reduce numerous distribution to the country.
