Storm causes fresh forest fire in Tenerife

Storm causes fresh forest fire in Tenerife < Spanish news | Expatica Spain: A storm caused a forest fire on the Spanish island of Tenerife that threatened a village, prompting residents to evacuate from their homes, an official said Wednesday.

Strong winds blew down an electric pylon that caused a fire which spread over 3,000 square metres (32,000 square feet), said a local council official who asked not to be named.

The fire struck in Los Realejos on the north of the popular holiday island, which despite Tuesday's stormy weather remains largely parched after a scorching summer.
