Update on the fire

It’s bigger:

Montes de Luna and the top end of Tigalate have been evacuated, but the firefighters are finally feeling hopeful. The temperatures have dropped (28 ºC is a big improvement on 35 ºC) the fire in Fuencaliente is controlled, and they’ve been hitting the front in Mazo with everything they’ve got. It’s not out, but it is sorta-kinda controlled. The trouble is that things tend to get worse at night, when the aircraft can’t fly and the wind changes as the island cools down.

So we’ll see what the morning brings.
