A brush fire in the Parque Nacional Chirripó burned at least two to three hectares Monday, some five to 7.5 acres.
Some 20 members of the Brigada de Bomberos Forestal from San Jerónimo responded to the 5 a.m. alarm. Fire fighters
feared that the blaze would take off due to high winds.
The difficult access to the area caused problems for fire fighters, they said
The fire fighters have established a command post at the park and expect more help, including Costa Rican firemen, today.
