Rural bonfires forbidden across Almeria in emergency move

Bonfires in rural areas have been forbidden as from the 1st of May in a sudden move by the Junta to stave off any more forest fires.

It’s a month earlier than expected, and any permits that have been issued for the month of May have been annulled by the Environmental Ministry.

The Junta says that the dry conditions, high winds and lack of rain for the rest of the month means it’s had to take emergency steps to prevent people lighting bonfires in rural areas.
