The Bank of Portugal has recovered about 4,000 notes that were damages in last year’s huge forest fire, returning about €115,000 to the rightful owners, the central bank said on Monday.

The Bank said that it withdrew about 647 million notes from circulation last year worth around €13.3 billion.
Around 1.3 million of the notes were €500 denomination bills worth €597 million, the bank said.
Following last year’s fires, the Bank of Portugal received a large number of damaged notes of which it was able to check and confirm the origin so the amounts could be returned to the proper owners. TPN/Lusa
