Spain wildfire fueled by strong winds, high temperatures force evacuations

CA, 11 Sep 2021
A wildfire in Spain which broke out Wednesday night in the mountainous Sierra Bermeja above Estepona, continued to rage on Friday forcing the evacuations of more than 1,000 people and has so far burned more than 3,600 hectares.

More planes and a helicopter are expected to be brought to add to the already ongoing fight against the flames. But a regional fire brigade official warned the fire likely would not be brought under control until at least Saturday.

Regional environmental chief Carmen Crespo said the blaze appeared to have been started deliberately and investigators were working to uncover more details. She also said Thursday a firefighter had died while trying to fight the flames.
