Wildfire in The Campo

Residents of Santa Margarita were evacuated today due to a wildfire blazing near the houses there. Santa Margarita is a Gated community (known as an urbanization in Spanish) in the northern suburb of La Línea de la Concepción in the Province of Cádiz.

The fire, which caused a dense smoky haze visible from Gibraltar and various points in the Campo de Gibraltar, started after 12:30 on a large plot adjacent to Avenida del Burgo.
