After the huge fire between Casares and Estepona recently, that saw 130 firefighters battling the blaze overnight, the Andalucian Forest Firefighting Agency, INFOCA, have published the latest fire risk map.

The areas most at risk are shown in red, with Granada province on particularly high alert.

INFOCA also reminded drivers that throwing cigarettes out of car windows carried substantial fines  – four points on the driving licence, a €200 fine and up to six years in prison if the discarded cigarette caused a forest fire.
