Fire overnight in Serra d`Água
The Journal reports that a fresh fire threatened houses in Serra d`Água overnight. The commander of the Firemen of Ribeira Brava had initially stated it was not threatening residences, and that any fresh outbreaks had been quickly identified, addressed, and by the end of yesterday were dying out.
However photos from a JM reader show that the fires descended from the uninhabited zone during the night and approached some houses on the edge of Serra d`Água. “There are frightened people” is the quote that accompanies the photo.
