Three men from the hamlet of Las Rozas have been charged with arson after allegedly starting a fire which scorched 4 square km of land.

It is believed that the men, aged 27, 39, and 69, started the fire after a quarrel between farmers.

The fires were apparently started at two locations, situated 50m apart.
