Fire Contained but continues to be out of control
The fire that broke out in Tenerife last week has been contained but continues out of control within its perimeter. Focus points in the national park have been put out but the winds have complicated firefighting efforts and reactivated some. Weather conditions are improving, with temperatures reducing and humidity increasing, and the fire remains at level 2 and therefore under the control of the Canarian Government, hopes are high that there will be considerable improvement today The fire has a boundary of some 42km and has consumed around 7,500 acres, and the zone will remain closed to the public for some weeks for maximum safety. The public is again requested to keep roads in the area clear for firefighting resources.
