Gran Canaria fire is diminishing
After four days of a violent forest fire and successive bad news, the Canary Islands President Ángel Víctor Torres gave a light all-clear yesterday. "It is an extraordinary fire, with very high columns of smoke, many sources of fire and a diameter of 78.8 kilometres. But it is slowly losing its strength and we hope to have it under control soon. The south flank and the Tamadaba National Park are of particular concern," he explained at a press conference. Falling temperatures are another auxiliary factor. The first evacuees were able to return to their homes yesterday. In the meantime, 12,000 hectares of forest have already been burned.
