Ban on mountain fires of all types while heatwave lasts

From 6pm this evening, the Tenerife Cabildo will reinstate the ban on all fires in the mountains as a result of the second heatwave in a matter of weeks. It’s just five days since the authorities lifted the ban put in place for the first hot spell. As before, no agricultural burn-offs will be permitted, nor work with machinery, and of course fireworks and BBQs in recreational areas are ruled out as well. The ban will remain in place while conditions persist: at present temperatures in the mid-to high-30ºs are expected for much of this week.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
