A fire in Marinha da Mendiga, Porto de Mós municipality, in the Serras de Aire e Candeeiros Natural Park, is being fought since the early morning, mobilising 157 operational personnel this morning, according to Civil Protection.

The alert for the fire in the locality of the Union of Parishes of Arrimal and Mendiga was given at 2:45am, with elements of rescue and security forces from the districts of Leiria and Santarém taking part in the operations, supported by 42 vehicles and five aerial means.

According to a source from the District Relief Operations Command (CDOS) of Leiria, “the fire is giving way to the means”, with the fight evolving favourably.

However, operations have been hampered by the characteristics of the rocky area of the mountain.
