At this moment, people are being evacuated from Ramel de Loix, an urbanisation on the mountain above the village of Finestrat. Roads are closed between Finestrat and La Nucia. A mountain fire started by an electricity pylon being blown over by high winds is now engulfing the whole eastern side of the Puig Campana. From my house here in Finestrat I can clearly see the flames in the night sky shooting high and travelling with the ferocity of the gale force winds. The full extent of the fire is still unknown but I'm sure this devastation will clearly be seen at daybreak.
