As the fire in the Alicante mountains continues to advance, the emergency services decided to evacuate more villages yesterday (Monday) afternoon – Tollos, Beniaia, Fageca and Famorca.
According to the regional emergency services HQ, a total of 1,200 people have now been moved from their homes as a precautionary measure.
The fire has now burned 9,500 hectares of countryside and has a perimeter of 65 kilometres.
The provincial fire brigade noted that they continue to have a very large number of firefighters and resources battling the blaze and they thanked neighbouring regions for helping out.
