The fire had two active fronts, leading authorities to close a considerable stretch of road between Lagos and Albufeira.

 

The fire ignited yesterday afternoon in Odiáxere; the A22 was closed between 4.30pm and 7pm, when the fire was brought under control.

 

Three aircraft and over one hundred fire-fighters were involved in tackling the blaze.
