A CLUSTER of small wildfires in the countryside above Torrox are spreading rapidly towards numerous homes on the mountain above.


A south-easterly wind is carrying the flames towards country road Carril de las Palominas near kilometre 11 of the A-7207 Torrox-Competa road.

A group of concerned onlookers has gathered and a fire-fighting plane was seen to pass overhead before a helicopter made its way to the scene.

A wildfire has also been declared in the Alpujarras this afternoon. Thirty-five specialist forest firefighters are on the scene alongside one firefighting helicopter.
