Fire coming down into valley

Due to the smoke, I´ve left Turre and moved further up the valley.

Cabrera and Cortijo Grande have been evacuated and the roads sealed off by Guardia.

The fire now extends from the right of Cabrera down to Mojacar.

  1. David,

    Wanted to thank you for the information you have provided on the fires. My parents are currently in Mojacar and it was really helpful to get up to the minute information. Although they were evacuated yesterday they seem to be fine and back at La Parata now.

    Once again, many thanks.
