In Portugal raging fires of unprecedented proportions.
Almost every summer in Portugal and raging wildfires, but this year the disaster has been particularly large: 62 persons were lost, hundreds of people sought medical help.
Portuguese municipality Pedrogao Grande, located 200 km North of Lisbon, has become a real disaster zone: here burns 95% of the forest, the inhabitants of twenty villages had to be evacuated. To date, about 62 known victims.
The fire spread so rapidly that not allowed people to leave a burning area on the car. A picture of the Apocalypse was completed with strong gusts of wind carrying around the burning rooftops.
The inhabitants of a village managed to escape thanks to the ingenuity: instead of having to break through a wall of fire, 12 people — including 95-year-old woman down into the well. They spent more than six hours, and it helped them to save lives.
