Firefighters contain car blaze
This was the scene on the TF-82 in the municipality of El Tanque after firefighters were called out to deal with a car blaze.
Traffic was held up as a result of the incident which left the car completely gutted.
The crew from Icod de los Vinos was joined by volunteer firefighters from Santiago del Teide.
The driver was hurt but there was added concern because the blaze broke out near in an area of high vegetation and given the high wind and scorching temperature, it could easily have spread.
However, the fire was successfully put out and the carriageway cleared and returned back to normal.
