Firefighter dies in Spanish wildfire

More than 300 firefighters are working to extinguish the fire, which has yet to be brought under control, Andalusia's emergency services posted on Twitter.

As of late August, wildfires had ravaged 183,500 acres in Spain, above the average of the last 10 years but still some way off the 469,500 acres destroyed in 2012, the worst year in the past decade.

Environment Ministry data show seven of the 10 hottest years on record in Spain occurred in the last decade.
