It started on Saturday in Pujerra, Málaga, and was not brought under control until Sunday.

The Junta de Andalucía has said that cork oaks, pines and shrub were all affected and the UME, Military Emergency Unit was called into assist INFOCA. 

The strong winds in the area, upto 40kms/hour on Saturday, complicated the control of the fire, and the fire-fighters continued their work on Saturday night despite temperatures of -4ºC.

More than 240 people took part in fighting the fire, using four helicopters and five amphibious planes. There were no injuries and nobody had to be moved from their homes.
