Forest fire brought under control
Yesterday afternoon at around 3pm, a forest fire broke out in the area of Cañada de Los Guancheros near La Fortaleza in the borough of La Orotava and spread quickly. A total of 114 people were deployed to fight the fire, and they brought it under control. A total of 20 hectares of bushes were affected. Thanks to a military bulldozer approaching the most critical flank of the fire, the fire fighters were able to fight the fire in a targeted manner. In addition, temperatures dropped and the wind eased. Currently, the situation is stable and the fire-fighting work is continuing.
