Wildfires in Pujerra, Spain (2022-06-09)

Collection: CEMS-RRM : CEMS Risk and Recovery Mapping 


Activation date: 2022-06-09
Event type: Forest fire, wild fire

Activation reason:

The CEMS Risk and Recovery Standard (RRM STD) has been activated by the Spanish General Directorate of Civil Protection and Emergencies (CENEM) on behalf of the Ministry of Interior of Spain, D. G. Guardia Civil and Jefatura del Seprona, following the forest fire that broke out in the region of Andalucía (Spain) on 7th of June 2022. Within the municipalities of Pujerra, Juzcar and Benahavís (Málaga) more than 5,000 hectares of wooden areas have burnt. The goal of the activation is to provide wildfire damage delineation and grading products that will support the police investigation.The P07-Wildfire delineation and grading product has been generated by using post-event VHR satellite images. The analysis resulted in 5068.35 ha burnt, of which 960.32 ha have been only slightly damaged, 1214.61 ha moderately damaged, 1885.56 ha highly damaged and 1007.86 ha destroyed.The P14-Impact assessment analysis on assets and population shows that the fire ravaged inside an unpopulated area, but the community of Benahavis and the village of Pujerra were under threat. Only one isolated building is located inside the burnt area. Most of the affected transportation network concerns car tracks and no driveways (unpaved cart tracks presumably serving the local agriculture, forestry and tourism industry). The fire mostly affected coniferous forest areas and sclerophyllous vegetation, they are the two most common vegetation types in the AOI. The fire did not affect permanent agricultural fields but some fruit trees plantations and olive groves were impacted.
