A British pensioner has been made a formal defendant in an investigation into a large wildfire that broke out in Monchique and Portimão last Monday.

According to newspaper Correio da Manhã, the 70-year-old Briton may have unintentionally started the large blaze after he started a fire to clear his land. He reportedly warned authorities beforehand of his intentions to slash-and-burn, but failed to properly contain the clearance. He could now face charges of negligence. More than 100 firefighters and 4 aircraft were called out to the fire on Monday.
