The blaze was in central Portugal around Proença-a-Nova, 200 kilometres north of Lisbon. The fire’s perimeter stretched more than 55 kilometres and about two dozen people were evacuated from hamlets as more than a dozen bulldozers cleared firebreaks in the area. The wildfire began Sunday, and five firefighters suffered burns in its initial stages as their vehicle was caught in the flames.
