There was a small fire close to the Cable Car Station on the Upper Rock Nature Reserve yesterday.

The City Fire Brigade responded to the call and brought the fire, which was on the eastern cliffs overlooking Catalan Bay, swiftly under control.

The Royal Gibraltar Police also attended and sealed off the area.

The incident comes just weeks after a major fire on the lower slopes of the Upper Rock Nature Reserve, immediately behind the Mount Alvernia residence.
