ONE hundred and fifty campers were evacuated after a forest fire broke in La Doctora, San Roque.

The residents who were staying at ‘La Casita’ campsite located at kilometre 125 of the N-340 were alarmed after the smoke from the fire was blown by a western wind. Emergency services were alerted to the fire shortly after 3pm on Sunday and it took four hours for it to be brought under control.
