Tenerife wildfires now under control

Tenerife wildfires now under control

Roads in Tenerife have re-opened despite a wildfire which has devastated 369 hectares of land in the centre of the island since Friday.

A Tenerife Tourist Board update said the fire is now under control and limited to a sector of mountains in the upper part of four locations.

“The wildfire does not affect in any way holiday resorts or any inhabited areas on the island, located mostly on the coast,” the latest statement said.

“The general public – local population and tourists – are strongly recommended to avoid the fire vicinity in order to facilitate the extinction work.

“The fire has been cordoned off in a specific geographic area, which means that all of the island‘s infrastructure is working smoothly, including the holiday attractions as well as tourist and leisure facilities.”

But the tourist board stressed that the lighting of fires in recreational areas, burning clippings and bonfires are all strictly forbidden.
