ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Spanish firemen fought forest fires on Thursday (September 21) which have swept through some 2,000 hectares in La Cumbre, Gran Canaria. Around 800 people were evacuated as firemen tried to stop the blaze, which erupted on Wednesday (September 20). Low temperatures, rain and the direction of the wind helped the efforts of the emergency services and avoided the evacuation of the densely populated north part of the island.
