L'incendie continue de ravager le parc naturel de Doñana — Andalousie

Espagne : 1800 personnes évacuées face à un feu de forêt

Un incendie a atteint dimanche le parc naturel de Doñana dans le sud de l'Espagne et entraîné l'évacuation de plus de 1.800 personnes, ont annoncé les autorités.

La lutte contre le feu est compliquée par le vent et la chaleur et l'incendie est pour l'instant "hors de contrôle" selon les services d'urgence. Dimanche, un quartier a été évacué pendant quelques heures.

"Les flammes ne sont pas arrivées jusqu'au parc national (.), un effort particulier a été fait durant la nuit sur le front qui le menaçait", a fait valoir le responsable régional de l'Environnement, Jose Fiscal Lopez, interrogé par la télévision 24 horas. Selon Susana Diaz, la présidente de la région andalouse, les causes de cet incendie sont dues à un "facteur humain" volontaire ou non. Leurs effectifs doivent être renforcés ce lundi matin, mais " la première offensive, ce sont les moyens aériens qui vont la mener", a-t-il ajouté.

Le parc de Doñana, classé au patrimoine mondial de l'humanité et réserve de biosphère de l'Unesco, est situé en Andalousie et accueille chaque année environ 300.000 visiteurs.

Plus de 200 soldats du feu, avec 15 autopompes, travaillaient en début de matinée, appuyés par sept appareils dans les airs, selon le compte Twitter du dispositif, Infoca.

The fish is thought to have moved close to the shore after becoming disorientated before vanishing after swimming back out to sea. Wildlife experts have been forced to put down a blue shark after it sparked panic on a beach on the Spanish island of Majorca .

Aucune victime n'est à déplorer, mais 1.850 personnes ont dû être évacuées, notamment les occupants d'un camping de cette région très touristique et actuellement en proie à la sécheresse.

Lundi, le maire de Moguer s'est toutefois montré rassurant sur le sort des autres félins élevés en captivité, disant qu'ils "étaient sains et saufs".

L'élu a affirmé que l'incendie était d'origine humaine, en disant: "nous avons l'assurance que la main de l'homme est derrière".

Les pompiers n'ont livré aucune évaluation du nombre d'hectares affectés.

Le feu menace le parc national de la Donana qui abrite des espèces protégées comme le lynx ibère et l'aigle impérial espagnol.
