Ramos said that in spite of a successful fire-fighting operation overnight, the flames had not been fully brought  under control.

Some 400 fire fighters supported by helicopters and other aircraft were battling the flames on Friday.

The total reach of the fire covers 20,000 hectares of land, Catalan Interior Minister Miquel Buch told journalists in Vinebre, adding that heat and strong winds were complicating firefighting efforts.

The fire which broke out on Wednesday led to evacuation of  many  homes in Torre de l’Espanyol, Flix, Vinebre and Palma d’Ebre  on Thursday.
