The air is thick with smoke & the wind is fierce as it has been all day. According to reports I have seen on local sites fire brigades from Inca & Alcudia have been called and evacuations have been ordered from some parts of Siller.

looks awful, hope everyone's ok. thought there'd been enough rain recently to make sure this type of fire wouldn't happen.

So sad to watch the video clips and pictures last night....terrifying for all concerned, praying it wasn't going to get any worse overnight, so relieved to read it hadn't when I read the MB this morning. Just a horrendous thing to have happened.
