Brush fire quickly extinguished

A brush fire near the village of Taguluche in the west of La Gomera was brought under control quickly and extinguished late on Tuesday night. This is the third such fire this summer after one in the east of the island at La Laja and another one in the centre of the forest in the national park in the popular Las Creces area. None of these fires did much damage, but all three started under suspicious circumstances. There have also been several minor fires on the other Canary Islands this summer, but thankfully all were put out rapidly.  Please be careful and vigilant when you're out and about and report any fire immediately. Just call 112 - they even have operators who do speak English.
