Grass Fire In Castillejar Gets a Little Too Close!

Mum was ironing in the entrance to the cave, when she suddenly said 'can you smell smoke?' - just thinking it was a neighbour having a fire we never thought too much about it......until the evil balck smoke got worse and worse. I went out to investigate (as most of the village were having a siesta right at this time)......the fire was pretty bad, and noone had noticed. I called the firebrigade and eventually they turned up.......it came right from the campo - up to the top of the hill (thankfully there is a road between the fire and our cave!).

Mum was more bother she was going to lose the signal to the tele whilst Andy Murray was playing in the semi final!
