A helicoptor lands next to a field of horses while taking a break from fighting a massive forest fire on the hills between Cala Llonga and Roca Llisa on the beautiful East Coast of the island of Ibiza. The fire which broke out at around 8pm on Sunday 18th September 2011 destroyed approximately 150 hectares of forest before being brought under control.

Ibiza is one of the Spanish Balearic Islands situated off the coast of Spain in the Western Mediterranean.
