Forest Fires Kill 24 In Central Portugal


The death toll in forest fires in central Portugal has risen to 24, says Prime Minister Antonio Costa.

The majority died while trying to flee the Pedrogao Grande area, 50 km (30 miles) south-east of Coimbra, in their cars, according to the government.

Several fire fighters are reported to be among about 20 people injured.

It is not yet known what caused the fire, which has also burnt down houses in the area. Read more at BBC.
