WILDFIRES in Lubrin and Berja this week affected some 19 hectares, the Andalucia Plan Infoca firefighting service said.
Both fires broke out on Wednesday. The blaze in the El Pocico area of Lubrin was the biggest, leaving approximately 15 hectares scorched.
Plan Infoca reported that although the fire was at no point serious, the landscape made it difficult for firefighting teams to access the area. By early evening the fire was under control, but firefighters remained on the scene first thing on Thursday to ensure it was completely extinguished.
The Berja blaze started up around lunchtime in the Rey Chico zone and burned through around four hectares. Plan Infoca said by it had been stablised by the afternoon and controlled by midnight.
