A large fire broke out on Thursday afternoon in a forested area near the Spanish town of Villanueva de Viver, in the province of Castellón, near Valencia. Local authorities have evacuated about 1,500 people who live in the city and in other neighboring municipalities as a precaution. Firefighters worked through the night to try and put out the fire, which burned about ten square kilometers of land. However, the strong wind hindered the extinguishing of the flames and it is possible that in the next few hours it will fuel them further. At the moment there are no hypotheses about the cause of the fire.
