The two villages Mesocco and Soazza were on 27. December hit by forest fires. Due to the fires the A13 had to be closed.
If you want to drive to Ticino over the Christmas period, you must currently avoid the Gotthard route. The A13 is closed until further notice. Due to the fires in the canton of Grisons, there is a risk of falling rocks.
