Tenerife forest fire darkens sky over island

A forest fire raging on the Spanish island reached the edge of a major tourist park on July 16, spewing thick smoke and red sparks. The fire broke out on July 15, 2012, prompting emergency services to evacuate 90 villagers from their homes overnight, and has spread over 1,800 hectares (2,700 acres), the regional government said.Desiree Martin / AFP - Getty Images
