The fire quickly ignited the wild cane and a palm tree, giving off smoke that was clearly visible from most points along the bay.
The Almuñécar fire service were alerted and soon put the small blaze out. No nearby housing was damaged.
The area was dampened down at least twice to make sure that the fire would not come back to life again and around five o’clock the fire was officially declared out.
