Some 300 residents of the Lauro Golf urbanizationlocated in Alhaurin de la Torre, they can go back to their homes after being evicted yesterday due to the serious forest fire that is burning 1,890 hectares in Alhaurín de la Torre, Alhaurín el Grande and Mijas.
“This morning it was appreciated that the residents of Lauro Golf return to their homes because their homes are down the road and they can be relocated”, assured the Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development, Carmen Crespoafter the meeting held at the Advanced Command Post after ten in the morning.
The counselor has also underlined that “there is no danger of evicting more dwellings“, so in principle there will be no more shocks in this regard. However, until this morning there were a total of 3,065 people evicted by the fire, of which 2,000 live in the urbanizations of Ardalejo, Buenavista, San Jorge, La Chicharra and Doña Paca (upper area) in Alhaurín el Grande and 1,065 in the urbanizations of Jarapalos, Comendador Alto, Lauro Golf and Pinos de Alhaurín (outer area) in Alhaurín de la Torre, since the 300 residents of Lauro Golf are returning this morning to their homes, there are still more than 2,765 people without being able to access their property.
The councils of Alhaurín de la Torre and Alhaurín el Grande yesterday adapted the El Limón sports center and the municipal pavilion respectively so that people who had to leave their homes could be located there. Crespo has indicated that finally about 60 people stayed last night, since most went to the homes of relatives or friends. At the moment there are 45 people there and a total of 200 seats, so there is plenty of room. “The important thing is that everyone is in perfect condition and there have been no notable accidents,” said the counselor.
The Deputy Minister of the Interior, Antonio Sanzrecalled that last night 300 homes were evicted in the area bordering the field of the Pinos de Alhaurín de la Torre urbanization and that highway 404 is still closed. “There is a contingency plan prepared to be able to act in any situation because there are many urbanizations in the two municipalities,” she indicated.
The Infoca points out that we are facing “complicated” hours because the weather conditions are adverse, for which Sanz has stated that “there may be ash and smoke again near the designated area, so we recommend closing the windows, doors and remove awnings.
