Forest fires in Portugal

By June 20, 2017September 11th, 2021No Comments

A forest fire has claimed the lives of a large number of people in the Pedrogão Grande area of central Portugal and isn’t yet under control. Other smaller fires have also been reported elsewhere in the country due to high temperatures. Forest fires are highly dangerous and unpredictable; check with local authorities if you’re considering travelling to the affected areas. Take care when visiting or driving through woodland areas and report fires to the emergency services on 112.
