A fire in the Ses Feixes area of Ibiza Town has lead to road closures and emergency property evacuations.

The fire started on Monday in an area that will be best known to many as adjacent to the Ikea store, near the Pacha roundabout.

The fire has taken hold in the fields of tall grasses known to have caused concern as an ongoing fire risk for some years.

As a result of the fire the ring road had to be closed with traffic diverted and causing chaos on the city centre roads.

It was also deemed necessary to evacuate one residential house, and move the vehicles from a garage that stands close to the fire.

Firefighters and emergency services are already working in the area to try to quell the flames, which at times have crossed the dual carriageway Av de Santa Eulària.
