Portugal’s National Authority for Civil Protection on Monday said it would extend the red alert for wildfires to seven districts until Wednesday.

Red alert for wildfires maintained

The red alert was activated on Saturday in the districts of Braga, Bragança, Guarda, Porto, Viana do Castelo, Vila Real and Viseu.

Alexandre Penha, from the National Authority for Civil Protection, said the decision to prolong the alert was due to a rise in fires, with 73 registered on Friday, 98 on Saturday, 113 on Sunday and 75 on Monday.

Earlier this month, Portugal was hit by raging wildfires in the tourist destination of Algarve, which left 25 people injured.

Last year’s devastating wildfires killed 64 people and injured over 250.
