The Almuñécar fire service was also needed over in La Herradura where there was a small hill fire, within of an hour of a traffic accident in Almuñécar.
The fire occurred on a small tropical fruit plantation in the Cuesta del Marchante area, close to the Paraje Natural de Cerro Gordo.
According to the Spokesperson for the Almuñécar fire service, around 2,000 sq/m of the plantation were affected.
Again, the fire was caused by the owner who had been burning cut branches. The owner had a permit to do so, but the wind and prolonged dry conditions should have made the man think twice about lighting the fire.
