Violent fire near Collioure

Violent scrub fires erupted yesterday in the hills around Collioure, near to the Spanish border. Aggravated by strong winds the fire spread quickly and the roads in that area made access difficult for the  100 or so pompiers.
Despite use of water-dumping Canadair aircraft over 10 hectares were burned.
