No Image

Around 1,000 residents from 12 villages in Navarre province in Northern Spain have been forced from their homes as firefighters battled forest fires in the region on Monday. The villagers have been housed in emergency accommodation, the 'Noticias de Navarra' newspaper reported on the basis of information from the local authorities. The situation is reported to be worst amid changing wind directions in the Sierra del Perdón mountain range and in Gallipienzo, some 20 kilometres south of the provincial capital of Pamplona. The situation was reported to be improving gradually, as the recent heatwave passes, and temperatures fall below 30 degrees Celsius.
