The thick black smoke


Those of you who don’t visit my Flickr page might be wondering just where that cloud of thick black smoke came from.

I quote from my Flicr picture:

Yesterday, firemen from Orihuela had to extinguish a fire caused by burning stubble on a farm in the hamlet of Correntías.

The proximity of the fire to two warehouses, one with a gas, forced a precautionary evacuation of the area.

Now the Civil Guard and local police from Orihuela are investigating whether the fire was started deliberately.

The pall of thick black smoke filled the air and was carried down by the light wind towards Murcia.
