Madrid bans BBQs until November

Narbona explained that the decision had been taken as a result of the tragic forest fire in Guadalajara this last week which caused the death of 11 people.

Narbona added that the firefighting equipment for each autonomous community will be increased and each will be provided with larger aircraft with night vision as soon as possible.

Going back on his declarations earlier on in the week when he explained that he doubted any BBQ ban would become effective on the island, Tenerife’s Environmental chief Wladimiro Rodr�guez added that although the Canarian Archipelago has its own regulations, it would not seem unreasonable to discourage people from using the recreational areas for BBQ’s in times of high temperatures.

The Cabildo is advising people not to go to the mountain areas because of the temperatures in excess of 30 degrees plus and if they do decide to go, to consume pre prepared food and not to light any barbecues. Anyone found lighting barbecues in recreational areas or in any open space will be dealt with by the authorities.
