1,000 firefighters battle Portugal wildfires

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Hundreds of firefighters have been deployed to central Portugal where several wildfires have forced people to flee their homes.

One person has suffered serious injuries. At least seven firefighters have also been hurt.

Helicopters and planes have been used to douse three blazes in the mountainous Castelo Branco region, where one village has been evacuated.

On Sunday, officials said two of the fires had been brought under control.

A friend of mine uploaded this article from Portugal. I translated it with google but it didn't carry the translation into the copy and paste. It should ask you if you want to. This is just so sad. I hope they can get these fires out soon.

It's happening every summer there.  They don't do enough back burning IMO.
