Police Hunt Arsonist Who Started a Fire in a La Mata Park

The Guardia Civil have launched a hunt for an arsonist who started a blaze in the La Mata area of Torrevieja last Friday evening.

The fire started in some trees in the Molino del Agua natural park not far from La Mata beach, which was the location of a similar incident in 2013.

Matches and bottles of fuel were discovered with the blaze contained to a small area, with the remnants of the previous fire acting as a block on it spreading further.
