The Tenerife Cabildo says that it will be carrying out controlled firebreak burning between 10am and 2pm today in the hills around Icod de los Vinos. The works are being carried out by Brifor (Brigadas Forestales) and are part of the general maintenance works of fire-defence infrastructure in Tenerife’s mountains. The Cabildo says that the public should therefore not be alarmed if they see smoke in the hills generally today because meteorological conditions mean that the smoke might travel around the whole island.
