Forest fire in Mallorca 'nearly under control'


A forest fire which has been raging in the Spanish island of Mallorca since Friday has almost been contained.

Authorities said it should be completely extinguished by the end of Monday.

A local man has been arrested for starting the fire accidentally with a barbecue at home.

The blaze has destroyed over 1,800 hectares of pine trees near the town of Andratx in a UNESCO designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
