Fires continue in Serra d’Água.

Serra d'AguaBoth local newspapers report that the fire in Serra d’Água is still not extinguished. The Journal reports six firefighters and three vehicles still attending the blaze at Eira de Moura which re-ignited yesterday afternoon. The same paper features another story on Miguel Albuquerque, President of the Regional Government of Madeira, calling for central government support with the cost of the proposed aerial firefighting on the island.

The Diario reports that the fires that broke out last week in Ribeira da Tabua are now completely extinguished and firefighters there have returned to base.

    You do wonder about the “copy cat” factor in these fires. It can’t be a coincidence that as soon as one breaks out there seems to be a spate of others.

    I’ve said elsewhere that it looks like a manic on the loose with a box of matches.
