Andalucía ablaze: More evacuations imminent in Granada and Jaén
09 July 2015 @ 21:07

FOREST fires sweeping the provinces of Granada and Jaén have forced hundreds of people to flee their homes and continue to spread out of control.

Two infernos in the Cazorla nature reserve, close to Segura and Las Villas in the province of Jaén but several kilometres apart are threatening to join in the middle and are fast heading for the border with Granada to the south-east.

Flames of five or six metres in height have engulfed pine forests in the mountains north of Lújar and are spreading rapidly west towards Motril, on the coast.

Overnight, the Granada fire crossed the GR-5607 highway west towards the Bolúcar area, and 624 residents have already been evacuated.
