Out-of-control Ibiza forest fire forces residents out of their homes
05 July 2015 @ 12:52

DOZENS of residents in an Ibiza village have had to flee their homes as a wildfire which started last night (Friday) continues to rage out of control.

Three planes and a helicopter were drafted in after flames were spotted in the rural Can Planells stretch of countryside close to a residential area in Sant Joan de Labritja, but they had to withdraw from the scene when night fell.

Emergency services say the blaze is 'pretty serious' and that high winds are fanning the flames.

The main road to the village has been closed to traffic.

And according to councillor for independent party Guanyem, Gianandrea di Terlizzi, the situation 'does not look good'.
