Portugal: Wildfires prompt 48-hour nationwide state of alert

Fires ravaged forests in Oleiros, Castelo Branco district, late on Sunday, prompting a nationwide state of alert for the next 48 hours, due to high temperatures which might further spread the blaze. At least one firefighter has lost his life in the attempts to put bring the fire at Oleiros under control which had already spread across 6,000 hectares by Sunday evening. The conflagration was finally extinguished by Monday evening, but firefighters remain on the scene in case of a rekindling of the flames according to local media.
