The fire is believed to have originated at a farm that once belonged to Libya’s Colonel Gaddafi, land on which 1,900 homes and a golf course are projected but which is now being used mainly as a private hunting reserve.

The same area was already affected in September 2021 by what turned out to be the most destructive fire last year in Spain, when flames devastated almost 10,000 hectares in eight Málaga municipalities. https://www.thelocal.es/20220609/3000-evacuated-from-spains-costa-del-sol-as-huge-fire-rages-on/
