A SERIES of wildfires which have joined together in the northern Alicante province towns of Benitatxell and Jávea have led to at least five urbanisations – many largely occupied by British expats – being evacuated.
Reports claim that some homes, possibly as many as 20, have already burnt down.
The blaze initially started at around 16.00 on Sunday in Benitatxell’s Cumbre del Sol urbanisation, but it later flared up again in at least two different places.
Emergency services believe it to be the work of arsonists.
