10,000 hectares of forests and bushes have already been burned.
The forest fire in Spain became the largest in the country this year. The element is raging near the historic city of Avia. 10,000 hectares of forests and bushes have already been burned, and the fire is out of control. Several thousand people from six settlements were evacuated.
The smoke from the fire reached the western suburbs of Madrid. Experts say it is harmful to health.
The fire started from a seemingly minor accident with a car on a minor road. The great heat in Spain helps to inflame it. The temperature in the area was about 40 degrees, which further complicates the work of firefighters.
