A fire which forced the evacuation of 40 homes and a rural hotel on Mallorca has been brought under control overnight. 350 hectares were affected in the municipalities of Maria de la Salut, Santa Margalida, Muro and Llubí.

Strong winds on Wednesday made its extinction more complicated, but conditions improved later. However another fire in Artà was reported only to be 40% controlled early Thursday morning and had affected 200 hectares.

Five local roads were closed by the fire, three of which are now open again, leaving the MA3440 and MA3443 affected Thursday morning.
