The socialist councillor, Maria Garcia, has denounced the illegal dumping of waste in the area of the barranco located between the Villamartin and Montezenia developments ion the Orihuela Costa, where already there has been at least one fire this summer.

Although there were no injuries, and the most recent outbreak was quickly dealt with, the councillor has demanded that the authorities in Orihuela take immediate steps to clean up the area and to monitor any further dumping, whether public or private, so as to avoid further hazards with another possible outbreak. She says that in the event of any further fire the accumulated rubbish could cause it to spread much faster.
