The first forest fire of the year.

The first forest fire of the year has been controlled and extinguished by the Emergency Services, the Fire Brigade and the Civil Protection.

The fire took place in the finca 'Sa Casa Nova' which is just off 'Carretera de Deia', the main road leading from Soller to Deia.

Pine trees were burnt and conditions were made difficult to bring the blaze under control due to high winds and a difficult location. The fire burnt through the night and could still be seen smoldering in the morning. The Emergency services stayed on the scene to make sure that the fire would not be revived.
