Portugal Forest Fire

A child sits inside a car nearby a forest fire that began in Oliveira de Frades, about 100 kilometers from Porto, and spread west to Sever do Vouga, and southwest to Águeda. Hundreds of firefighters were mobilized to fight this fire. Every year the country is plagued by fires and thousands of hectares of forest burn out of control.
