Gadór forest fire burns 3,500 ha of forest and scrub – hydroplane video!

The massive fire above Almería city is out now, and has burnt some 3,500 ha of land.

Scrub and pine forest have all gone up in flames. The municipalities of Enix, Alhama de Almería, Santa Fe de Mondújar, Terque & Gádor
were all affected. The possible cause was a tree falling onto a power line during the high winds of last week, causing a fire which quickly spread.

Here are a couple of videos I found on YouTube of the planes collecting water from Almería port to fight the fires.

An exclusion zone in the port was setup for them, as the water was quite still there.
