whose Mayor, Antonia Morera, says that efforts are now being made to make sure it does not cross over to Sierra Bermeja (the mountain we can see from Jimena, looking East).

According to Infoca, two watch and coordination planes, two earth carrying planes, two amphibious planes, four transport and extinction helicopters, and two large cargo choppers, left the scene at nightfall.
