There was a hillfire in Salobreña on the Costa Aguiera Alta, clearly visible from the Hotel Salobreña road junction yesterday.
Infoca used one of its helicopter extensively, carrying an underslung, water bucket, repeatedly diving down to the sea to scoop up water and then deliver the load onto the hillside fire.
A total of 16 Infoca personnel were used against the flames, as well as a fire truck.
The fire, which broke out around 16.00h, was quite close to a chalet and a tower containing an electricity transformer. The Policía Local also got drivers to remove parked cars on that particular lane of the urbanizacíón so that the flames would not reach them.
