A fire broke out at Ramla Bay in Gozo this afternoon as Malta continues to be baked by the summer’s first heatwave.
Video footage sent to Lovin Malta shows what appears to be a grass fire spreading through the fields near the bay with the fire appearing to come uncomfortably close to the road and nearby houses.
A spokesperson for the police confirmed that a fire had been reported at roughly 2pm.
