APARTMENTS and restaurants were evacuated in Ibiza as a fire tore through more than three hectares of forest.

Fire services responded immediately to the blaze, which started at 3.20pm today (June 14), and fortunately no-one was harmed.

The beach at Port des Torrent was also evacuated as a precaution, and it is believed the fire started somewhere in that area.
