Large fire in Bedar

A large fire is raging between Bedar and Los Gallardos. It appears to be in the main valley where the road up to the village is.

In the last half an hour, despite the presence of a couple of fire fighting helicopters, it has spread and now seems to be in the pine trees below El Pinar.

Spreading quickly I can see from here, aided by a very hot wind blowing strongly.
