News programmes were interrupted around 10pm last night to advise that a forest fire had broken out in the Anaga Mountains just above San Andres. I’ll post updates as and when they’re available, but as of now, just after midnight, fire crews are battling the blaze.
UPDATE midday: The fire has been under control since 9am after a sleepless night for many firemen and helicopter teams, and work is now continuing to extinguish it completely. Canarias24Horas. Thanks to Alex too for the comment confirming this.
