THE fire which ripped through Competa last summer has cost the Andalucian government  €350,000.

A total of 223.5 hectares of woodland was destroyed with more than 20,000 trees perished in the worst fire seen on the Costa del Sol last year.

More than 400 ecologists were involved in clearing up the damaged site as well as planting new trees, mostly pine.
