  1. For me the “breaking” news was, that you declare El Paraiso and Flamingo Golf to be part of Estepona.
    There is a district of Estepona called “El Paraiso”, not so near to AP7 but nearby A7.
    And there exists Flamingo Golf, but that is part of the village of Benahavis.
    Between El Paraiso and Flamingo Golf there exists “El Paraiso Alto” which is a district of Benahavis.
    Please can you be a bit more specific where the LARGE fire is located?
    To find the location of the border between Estepona and Benahavis please go to openstreetmap.org and there search for “Flamingo Golf Resort”.

    • i think you need to read the article Wolfgang…….it suggests the fire is near these places and secondly the news was NOT solely aimed at you.

      This reporter is not my favorite Wolfgang but come on…instead of scrutinizing openstreetmap.org get some fresh air in your lungs …….in other words get a life…!!!!
