Tenerife bomberos extinguished 13 small fires that had broken out between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. Fire chief Salvador Reyes said that the majority were caused by unknown factors and the Guardia Civil was investigating.
Fire crews were called out to 6 fires in La Laguna, 3 in Arona, 2 in Granadilla, and one each in San Miguel and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Thankfully, there is nothing remotely on the scale of the fires, now extinguished or almost under control, that have been seen over the last day or so in Gran Canaria and La Gomera, where around 500,000 square metres of scrubland have been burnt. C7
