Minutes later, another transport and extinction helicopter, a command helicopter, a coordination aircraft, seven forest firefighters, an operations technician and the SEIF Regional Command Group (GEMAF) have been incorporated.
This Sunday the warning of forest fire risk is very high or extreme in much of Andalusia, as is the case with the province of Malaga. Precisely, in the region of Axarquía, Aemet has activated the yellow warning due to high temperatures until 20.00 hours.
