Wildfires

Wildfires – Portugal

Wildfires flared across Portugal yesterday following a rise in temperatures and strong winds, with more than 1,500 firefighters deployed to tackle 17 separate blazes in central and northern Portugal. A stretch of Portugal’s main north-south highway, the A1, was closed due to one blaze. Massive clouds of smoke prevented the use of water-dropping planes in some places. No injuries were reported.
