Fire in Orihuela

A fire broke out yesterday in an area of pine trees and scrub at the foot of the Sierra de Orihuela where the N-340 enters the city. It started at 1:25 pm and took over three hours to put out because of the strong westerly wind. Although it is not certain what started the fire, an explosion in one of Iberdrola’s transformers is thought to be the most likely cause.
