Weather aids Canary blaze effort

Date : 3rd August 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Cooler temperatures are helping firefighters tackle forest fires that have burned for four days on La Palma in Spain's Canary Islands. Rain and lighter winds meant teams had brought one of two fires under control, local authorities said. They hoped to contain the other later in the day, they said. The fires have forced 4,000 people from their homes and destroyed dozens of houses. Firefighters have come from across Spain to help extinguish them.
