Canary Island, Spain — A burned-out public telephone box stands in a burned valley in Barranco de Guada on the Canary island of La Gomera, yesterday. Spanish authorities said Morocco sent two water-carrying planes to help in the battle to extinguish the wildfires that have torched some 3,000 hectares of land, including areas of a UNESCO World Heritage Site national park.
