Spanish wildfire still active

A wildfire raging close to a popular Costa del Sol resort was still active as locals spoke of their anger about the blaze, which is believed to have been started deliberately.

According to the Andalucia's regional forest fire agency, conditions had improved overnight, and over 400 firefighters supported by 41 helicopters were working to tackle the blaze.

Fanned by strong winds and high late-summer temperatures, the flames have driven over 1,000 people from their homes and killed one emergency worker since they erupted.
