Casillas wanted to underline how “good people” are the “friends” of Navalacruz and has indicated: “For these things are what one feels proud that they know us. Although being humble, I tell you that we would have preferred to be in the background, and that this would never have happened ”.
Also, at another time He also teaches the work they do making firewalls together with the volunteers who, like him, have joined the work of extinguishing the fire, which is still active and uncontrolled.
