The text reads, "Sept. 24, 2023: Sicily devastated by fires. Two more victims."
Wildfires have caused a record-high level of damage to the southern Italian island this year. Between late May and August, a long and dry heatwave put much of Italy in its grips.
The weather has cooled since then, but the threat of wildfires remained as there were unseasonably light rainfalls.
Coldiretti, Italy's main agricultural union, estimated in August that wildfires had consumed more than 600 square kilometers of land on Sicily this year, more than in all of 2022. The latest round of fires will add to that total.
Arson is suspected in several of the wildfires in Sicily and elsewhere in Italy this year. But no arson-related arrests have been made public so far.
