It’s not just California that has fire danger....the Valencian Community does too, with hot, dry summers and an abundance of brush and fuel on the hillsides above the coastal plain.
A fire has started in the forest near Artana (Bruno Soriano’s home town) and is raining ash on Vila-real. Here is a video shot from Betxi:
Lots of smoke, and apparently a lot of helicopters flying to try to dump retardant and put it out. I assume training has gone ahead as scheduled at the Sports City--the town of Vila-real is in no danger, there are two large motorways between the town and the fire, which is 5-6 miles away--but as the air quality continues to deteriorate, maybe Villarreal training sessions will be held indoors. This is a photo from the town of Onda, the outer reaches of which are now being evacuated as a result of the inferno (thanks to twitter user Antonio Rivera for this photo)
Here is a google map to orient you; the fire is burning in the forested land north of Artana and south of Onda.
