A fire broke in Xlendi Valley last Friday at around 4.30pm.

The fire was not close to residential area. However it was spreading fast across the valley and uphill. Smoke was also visible from many localities around Gozo. Luckily the fire was taken control of and put out a short time after the Civil Protection Department and the Fire Brigade arrived at the scene.

No one was injured however a big area from the valley was burnt.

The cause of the fire is still unknown.
