Mijas fire: Flames are stabilised after a more than 12-hour firefighting operation involving multiple aircraft and 10 ground troops

A FOREST fire in Mijas was finally brought under control on Sunday night.

The inferno kept firefighters busy after being sparked in the Venta los Condes area at around 4am.

Dozens of residents were evacuated from the nearby Valtocado urbanisation amid fears the flames could spread to their homes.

Firefighters were roped in from Marbella, Benalmadena and Fuengirola, alongside multiple helicopters and aircraft.

According to the latest update from Andalucia’s firefighting service INFOCA, the fire is now stabilised.

Local councillor Antonio Sanz Cabello said: “It has not been easy, but thanks to the hard work of firefighters since 4am, the fire has been stabilised and residents can return to their homes.”
