Scores of people formed a human chain passing water buckets in Vigo on Sunday in a bid to extinguish one of the many fires raging across Spain`s northwestern Galicia region.
The fires have already claimed the lives of two people whose bodies were discovered inside a burned-out vehicle on the road between Camos and Chandebrito in the city of Nigran.
It is believed the people may have become... Еще trapped by fire while driving through a wooded area.
Strong winds have fuelled the fires raging across four provinces in Galicia including a major fire in Vigo which is one of the most populated cities in the province.
The Ministry of Defence has reportedly deployed a total of 500 soldiers to join the 350 firefighters, 220 pumps and air assets.
The exact cause of the fire is not known.
