More than a hundred people were evacuated in several areas across Silves overnight, as the fire which started almost a week ago in Monchique, continues to head east.

Scores evacuated as fire spreads east

 

Around 12 areas were left void of inhabitants, due to the rapid rate at which the fire was spreading.

 

The current fire had to date consumed around 21,000 hectares, but this total is set to rise once the damage caused overnight is taken into consideration.

 

Civil Protection services said this morning that almost 1,500 firefighters are battling the blaze on several fronts and are being assisted by around 500 vehicles.
