Chirripó blaze charred more than underbrush

Police and judicial agents attempting to determine the cause of a brush fire in Parque Nacional Chirripó stumbled on a marijuana plantation. A number of the plants had been consumed by the blaze, but officials estimated that there had been 600.

No one was apprehended at the site. Planting marijuana on remote public land is common.
