Specialist INFOCA firefighters and air support from helicopters were called in.

Almost the entire area of Andalucia is on heightened alert for wildfires as the heatwave and high-temperature weather warnings remain in place across much of the country.


  1. Very sad news about the fires, please try and keep safe. But they will still carry on with the fireworks? Had some here in Torrox only a couple of days ago. Yer couldn’t make it up.
