A long hot summer awaits, and the first of the forest fires have already come.
The first happened over the weekend, and a helicopter was called in to dowse the flames after firefighters found it too difficult to get up the mountain.
Todays fire, which started at about 11am, ended the same way with a helicopter again being called in.
The cause of both fires is unknown, but Civil Protection is warning that this summer will be high risk after the wet spring we had caused heavy undergrowth to form, which is now drying out nicely in the heat.
Also today a house in Vera Playa caught fire – the fire brigade reckons an electrical fault caused the fire.
