HUNDREDS of firefighters and the military have worked through the night  to stablise the wildfires that are burning across the Huelva, Sevilla and Malaga provinces of Andalucia.

Three of the fires, at La Granada de Riotinto, Almadén de la Plata and Cazalla de la Sierra  have been burning since Friday afternoon – leading to the evacuation of hundreds of  residents at one point.

A fourth wildfire was declared last night (9 September) at 22:30 in the Montemayor area of Benahavis but that has also been stabilised by 41 forestry firefighters.

Speciliast fire fighting  teams from INFOCA remain on the scene of all the blazes to fully control and extinguish them.

There are no reports of injuries but it is believed that livestock perished in the Sevilla and Huelva fires.
