220 Forest fires in Portugal in one day

Saturday, August 12th, 2017 | World News

In Portugal there were 220 different forest and bush fires on Friday. Portugal has recorded a new record of forest fires in a single day.

As reported by the civil defense on Saturday, 220 different forest and bush fires blazed on Friday. More than 2500 firefighters with 800 vehicles as well as 15 fire engines and helicopters were used in the fight against the flames.

This summer, Portugal was particularly hard hit by forest fires. In June, 64 people were killed in such a fire. More than a third of the incinerated forest area across the EU this year has thus far been attributed to the country in the south-west of Europe.
