A FIRE in northern Huelva has forced the evacuation of 500 people.
The blaze, coupled with strong winds has spread over the El Campinillo area, forcing residents there and people living in Bellavista to abandon their homes.
Emergency services were called out – as previously reported – at around 3pm Monday (3 July) and have been battling since to control the fire.
