Mijas fire under control

The forest fire in Mijas, now thought to have been started intentionally, is under control and there were no incidents during the night.

Although the true extent of the damage has yet to be assessed, between 500 and 600 hectares of land has been destroyed by the blaze and five homes have been affected.

Around 300 properties were evacuated in Mijas, Marbella and Ojén at the height of the fire but the vast majority of people have now returned to their homes.
