Some 4,000 people were evacuated from their homes as a wildfire fanned by strong winds spread rapidly through hills around the popular southern Spanish tourist city of Marbella - 300 of these suspected to be British expats.

Regional Interior Ministry official Jose Luis Ruiz Espejo said the fire started early today outside the town of Coin and it is suspected to be arson.

Nearly all people in the nearby town of Ojen were evacuated and given shelter in sports centres in the coastal resort of Marbella.

Speaking on Cadena SER radio, Mr Ruiz Espejo said two people were injured, one seriously.

Do you have a home in Marbella? Or do you know any one who is there? Get in touch.

  • To, rosa.mcmahon@archant, sorry to inform you that the fires have not affected me, in fact these last two nights I've added an extra duvet to my bedding.
