Two forest fires have been declared this Wednesday night (8 September) in the municipalities of Genalguacil and Jubrique in the Serranía de Ronda, in Malaga province.

Ground crews have been deployed by the Infoca, the Junta de Andalucía body responsible for tackling wildfires.

In Jubrique, which suffered a major fire earlier this summer that burned more than 300 hectares, some 18 forest firefighters are battling the flames.

Meanwhile, in Genalguacil, another 25 forest firefighters, have been deployed.

The flames in the Sierra Bermeja, are visible from other towns in the Genal valley giving concern to residents as the conditions are very windy.
