FLAMES: In Huelva

SOME 500 people have been evacuated from Andalucia as firefighters tackle three separate wildfires.

It comes after a major blaze was declared La Granada Riotinto in Huelva at 3.50pm yesterday.

Water planes, firefighters and 100 soldiers from the Military Emergency Unit are still tackling the 20km front.

Meanwhile, two other fires have broken out in Almaden de la Plata and Cazalla de la Sierra in Sevilla.

It comes as the continued summer weather is being met by strong winds, likely aiding the flames.
