Risk of wildfires in Portugal high at least until Wednesday


The risk of wildfires in Portugal will remain high at least until Wednesday, according to the National Civil Protection Agency, which also revealed that since the beginning of the month around 640 wildfires have been reported in Portugal.

The Agency extended the high-risk fire season this year until 15 October due to the persistent hot temperatures.

Wind and low humidity are also factors that are forecast to continue for the coming days.
