BONE dry weather, sweats through the night and no sign of rain?
It must be summer in Andalucia.
Dry heat and even drier land create the perfect cocktail for fires – and that’s without the help offered by town hall-sponsored fireworks, pesky Chinese lanterns and beach BBQs.
As a trio of fires started in Sotogrande, Manilva and Mijas in the space of a few hours last week (not to mention huge swathes of Extremadura being destroyed), it should make us all the more aware of our fragile environment.
Ultimately, it is our duty as citizens to keep the emergency services up to date and keep a weather eye on the horizon.
