Canary Islands wildfire prompts large scale evacuations

A wildfire on Gran Canaria in Spain’s Canary Islands continued spreading on Monday. The fire has prompted the evacuation of nearly 9000 people from eight municipalities. The blaze, which began on Saturday, is reported to be advancing on several fronts, propelled by a combination of high temperatures, strong winds and low humidity. Around 6,000 hectares have burned so far.

I don’t understand why more preventative measures aren’t taken to prevent/contain forest fires: Cutting& removing dead brush/vegetation, making plenty of fire breaks, if at all possible have designated crossfire areas as to cause any potential fire to suffocate before it can spread.
