Faraján and Pujerra residents evacuated as Sierra Bermeja fire draws near

Faraján and Pujerra residents are being evacuated as the Sierra Bermeja fire draws near to their homes.

The operational direction of the Andalucia Infoca Plan has decreed to the preventive eviction of the Malaga municipalities of Faraján and Pujerra due to the Sierra Bermeja forest fire, which affects several localities and continues to spread today, Sunday, September, 12.
This is according to a report from the Andalucian Emergencies 112 system, which specified that the Guardia Civil, National Police, Assigned Police, Red Cross, Provincial Firefighters Consortium and Civil Protection are in charge of the evacuation.
This evacuation joins those carried out today in the municipalities of Jubrique and Genalguacil due to the fire, which has so far reportedly forced the eviction of 1,620 people.
A total of 617 professionals continue their work today, engaging in extinction and protection tasks for the population affected by this massive blaze, which has affected more than 6,000 hectares and in which an Infoca firefighter lost his life to last Thursday.
According to a post on Grupo Estepona Capital, police have arrested someone in connection with the fires, although this has yet to be officially confirmed.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!. Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
