Res­i­dents flee wild­fire

AROUND THE WORLD

Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

EMER­GENCY ser­vices in southern Spain are fight­ing a wild­fire that has forced the evac­u­a­tion of 400 res­i­dents from seven towns in the prov­ince of Seville.

Au­thor­i­ties said that the evac­u­a­tions had taken place mostly overnight be­cause of the smoke pro­duced by the blaze which broke out Fri­day.

About 120 peo­ple have been given shel­ter in a pub­lic li­brary, sports cen­tre and school. More than 130 fire­fight­ers are bat­tling flames that they say have reached 65 feet high across a front stretch­ing more than 12 miles. Au­thor­i­ties have yet to say how much land has been burned.
