GALES have complicated the work of firefighters battling to control more than 100 fires in the north of Spain.

Seventy-seven of the fires were located in Asturias where gusts reached 100 kilometres per hour while in Cantabria the regional government activated its Forest Firefighting Plan owing to warnings of high wind.

Residents in Muskiz (Vizcaya) had to leave their house as a forest fire approached their homes and were temporarily housed at the municipal sports centre.

The Muskiz fire was the most serious of the fires affecting forest areas in Vizcaya and where, as in Asturias and Cantabria, high winds have caused grave difficulties for fire brigades.
