Emergency services are currently tackling a fire that has apparently leapt the A7 motorway, as this dramatic picture shows.
The blaze started on waste ground across from the Mercadona supermarket on the Benahavis road and, fanned by strong winds, has made its way up a dry riverbed.
Emergency services, including several helicopters, are currently tackling the fire, which can be seen from nearby San Pedro. The Benahavis road has also been closed.
UPDATE: The area north of the Barcelo Hotel in Guadalmina has been evacuated and the Ronda Road has been closed as the blaze heads north. Fire planes have been called in.
UPDATE at 19.00. The fire has been declared under control by Marbella Town Hall
