Forest fire is not done with us quite yet

Forest fire is not done with us quite yet

The main road was closed on Saturday because of a small forest fire between us and El Perelló on Saturday, caused by a fault on one of the wind turbines. Then on Sunday a second and much larger fire started, they think due to a lightning strike, to the northwest of us, towards Tivissa and Ginestar. That is still burning as I write this on Tuesday afternoon, and the planes and helicopters are making repeated runs, dumping water on to the fire in an effort to control it.
