Dear History Groupers,
Here is some information about the recent fire near Competa
This is the report in the local press :
An arsonist may be behind the Competa forest fire that ravaged 200 hectares of forest and forced 600 people out of their homes over the weekend.
According to Jose Luis Ruiz Espejo, Delegate of the Junta de Andalucia in Malaga, the fire did not start “by chance.”
The arson hypothesis is based on the fact that the fire broke out on a riverside walking trail next to the Competa-Canillas de Albaida motorway.
