Monchique estimates loss of around €10M from fires

The wildfire that blazed for a week in the Monchique area, in Portugal's southern Algarve region, caused damage estimated at around €10 million to houses and munincipal facilities, the mayor of Monchique said.

“It is still too soon to carry out a full survey.

Some houses were affected most of which not in total but with loss to people, and we also have on a municipal infrastructural level a considerable amount […] The estimate totals around €10 million,” Mayor Rui André said in a statement.
