Algarve on maximum fire alert


Seven councils in the Algarve have this morning been placed on maximum fire alert.

The Portuguese Met Office this morning issued the highest fire warning for Faro, Portimão, Silves, Loulé, Tavira, São Brás de Alportel and Alcoutim.

The advisory comes after as a result of prevailing weather conditions, which continue to reveal a lack of humidity, rising temperatures and blustery conditions in the evening.

Elsewhere in Portugal, a further 22 areas have been placed on maximum fire alert.
