Fire near Lisbon airport

by TPN/ Lusa, in Regional · 09-08-2012 16:10:00 · 0 Comments

A fire started last Sunday near Lisbon airport close to the Torre, Camarate and Loures neighbourhoods, which was fought by 43 fire fighters.

Six fire brigades worked together to bring the fire under control without causing damage to the decrepid houses in the area, according to Joaquim Vicente from the Loures civil protection authority. The fire burnt through "bushy areas and swathes of dry reeds" where "a lot of detritus made the fire fighters’ work more difficult" and allowed the fire to spread further, added Mr. Vicente.

The main focus of the fire was on land near Lisbon airport, which led to preventative measures being carried out within the airport.
