Bush fire in Huércal-Overa

Today there was a bad fire in the mountains near Huercal-Overa and many hectares were burnt. It is close to where the TV transmitters are located and also close to where we walked, reported HERE.
This picture of the fire was taken using a 200mm lens, from a distance of about 18km, so it was a huge area of red flame on that hillside.

We saw the smoke from this as we drove home from Murcia airport along the toll road. I thought it must be a bush fire, but we were the other side of the mountains so we couldn’t see the flames.
