ANDALUCIAN media erupted this week as a forest fire raged in the village of Sierra de la Tejeda, near the town of Competa.

Expat Chris Barrett, a cameraman who has worked for international news agency Reuters, has sent the Olive Press exclusive footage of the dramatic fire.

Chris, who has lived in Nerja for four years, is currently producing a series of travelogues about the history of Andalucia with his company Seeba Films.
