Firefighters work overnight to stabilize the Pujerra fire

Firefighters worked through the night and early morning of June 10 to stabilize a 2,100-hectare forest fire near Pujerra, Spain. Local media, citing the head of INFOCA, the Andalusian Forest Fire Extinguishing Service, Juan Sanchez, reported that firefighters worked overnight to “control the irregular perimeters” of the fire. According to INFOCA, the fire perimeters were “stabilized” by 9 am local time on June 10, although the fire itself has not yet been brought under control. Some of the roughly 2,000 people who were evacuated from Pujerra and other affected areas earlier this week were allowed to return, with INFOCA authorizing the return of residents in the Benahavis, Benahavis Hill and Marbella Club areas to return on Friday morning. .
