500 people were evacuated from their homes on Saturday night after a wild fire broke out in La Granada de Riotinto.
In some cases, whole villages were evacuated due to the proximity of the fire, which has now been brought under control.
The fire, which is believed to have been caused deliberately, was tackled by over 350 emergency staff after fire control measures were brought in. Eight aircraft, four helicopters and three amphibious aircraft were also involved in the fire fighting efforts.
