Gran Canaria wildfire triggers evacuation of thousands of people!!

Firefighters on Spanish island say blaze is out of control and spreading on several fronts...

About 9,000 people have been evacuated from their homes on Gran Canaria in Spain’s Canary Islands, where firefighters are battling a wildfire that has burned more than 23 square miles of land...

More than 700 firefighters supported by 11 helicopters and five aeroplanes are struggling to contain the fire, which began on Saturday near the town of Tejeda and is advancing on several fronts, propelled by a combination of high temperatures, strong winds and low humidity...

The head of the Canary Islands government, Ángel Víctor Torres, described the blaze as voracious and an environmental disaster, and said it had been “neither contained nor controlled”...

The head of the local emergency services, Federico Grillo, said the fire’s main front was “impossible to extinguish” and that firefighting efforts were concentrated on containing the right-hand flank, where there are a large number of homes. The left-hand side had been stabilised, he said.

He said the front was vast and that “whatever we do in the west, depends on the east, which could send the flames back and reignite what we have extinguished”...

Gran Canaria: 4,000 evacuated as wildfires rip through island for second time in a week

This is the second series of wildfires to burn through the same area on the popular tourist island in a week...

Thousands of people have been evacuated from dozens of towns on Gran Canaria as firefighters battle to contain out-of-control wildfires...

The fires, which broke out on Saturday for the second time in a week, have forced around 4,000 people to evacuate at least 40 towns near Valleseco, a town situated on the north of the popular tourist island...

They had spread in two different directions and razed more than 1,700 hectares (4,200 acres) by Sunday afternoon, according to the island's provincial government...

Looks as if the blaze is still ongoing...
From the second article I linked >>>

"There is currently a huge operation under way involving nine helicopters, two planes and 600 emergency responders to control the fires, which officials say has "great potential" to spread further"...

Angel Victor Torres, the Canary Islands' regional president, told a news conference that the blaze was neither "contained nor stabilised or controlled"...

IDK but these wildfires seem to be happening more often lately, worldwide...

Along with the rising sea/water levels too, I've seemed to notice...

Me being of Irish Ancestry, I understand their sense of humour, of course :-)...

Why mourn over the departed? I can see why some people would want to see some humour at their gravesides...

It was the vet's wishes and he got his desired send off, judging from the reactions in the video :-)...

He sounded like a fun loving, family man...
