La Mola wildfire brought under control

At 1:37 p.m. today a wildfire was declared near a country road in the es Ram area of la Mola, according to reports by Formentera firefighters. An Ibanat (Institut Balear de la Natura) crew was dispatched to the scene, as were a helicopter and small plane from Eivissa. An area of approximately 100 metres of juniper and pine forest was affected. Workers were able to bring the flames under control quickly thanks to the fact that the Ibanat helicopter crew was already in the area effectuating its monthly training exercises. The Formentera Council firetruck and two Council staff also assisted in the extinction of the blaze.
