Fire razes 75 hectares in Grazalema yesterday

High temperatures cause smoke inhalation problems
GAZALEMA Flames swept through 75 hectares of the Sierra de Grazalema Nature Park, mostly in the municipalities of Cortes de la Frontera and Jimera de Líbar. Temperatures of 40 degrees C or more made control difficult as well as four injuries among the firefighters from INFOCA. These were for smoke inhalation on a day without even breeze in that area. One of the men had to be rescued from the fron line by his team mates, and later taken to hospital, where was treated with oxygen. The mayors of both places thought the fire was the result of arson.
