Fires rage across Canary island

Date : 2nd August 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



A huge forest fire is out of control on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, forcing the evacuation of up to 4,000 people, including tourists. Military aircraft are fighting the flames but firefighters have been pulled back from the worst-hit areas. Officials said they were "cautiously optimistic" that cooler weather conditions could enable firefighters to control the fire by nightfall. Some residents were saved just minutes before fire engulfed their homes.
