Around 20 fires reported last week in the Algarve


Despite the cold weather, around 20 small wildfires were reported last week in the Algarve.

The majority of these fires were recorded in rural parts of the region, with three of them occurring last Saturday in Silves, Alcoutim and Tavira.

According to the regional Civil Protection Agency, the low rainfall is the main reason for these fires, with a special GNR task force currently stationed at the Loulé heliport to deal with the initial stages of any potential major fire.
