Mijas fire 'stabilised' but not yet under control

COSTA DEL SOL / Mijas The fire that broke out last night on the mountains around Mijas was said to be 'stabilised' but not yet fully under control, according to reports earlier this afternoon. At the time of writing, we hear that the people evacuated from their homes have been allowed to return, and that the fire has so far burned over 400 hectares. Police are leaning increasingly towards arson as the reason behind the fire, but have yet to prove the possibility. Daybreak brought out the aeroplanes and helicopters to fight against the flames, which, although the wind was fairly heavy, did help to offer some optimism to the many firefighters and police that have been working hard to bring it under control.
