Huge fire in Calpe


AS the tinder dry conditions continue another major blaze has occurred, this time in Calpe. The fire is clearly visible from much of the town which will be packed with tourists at this time of year. 

Early reports indicate that the blaze started in the La Canuta urbanisation and quickly spread. Some houses have been evacuated and there are widespread power outages. Traffic has also been disrupted along the N332, already a very busy road in this area, and in July more so than usual. 

Several units of fire brigades and other emergency services have been sent to tackle the blaze.

More details to follow as the story unfolds.


  1. Believe it or not but in Alfaz del Pi some people keep on burning their green waste even without a “quemador”!!! The Police hardly says something, doesn’t note the infracions and the Townhall still gives restricted permission to burn when everywhere else in the Province or and Comunidad it is absolutely prohibited in the summer! Tere was also a fire in Altea last week!
    If you live in Alfaz or Albir and you see someone burning in the open from now on until the 31 of September please go to the City Hall and make a “Denuncia” The more people do so the more presure to stop this very dangerous nonsense. The European Comission says we have to recycle and certainly NOT BURN! Thank you for your help, Micheline Berger
