Portugal continues to burn despite every means being used to put out the more than 40 fires that are engulfing areas in 12 of the country’s 18 districts. The aerial attack on the deadly fires is to be stepped up after a number of European countries including France agreed to send specialist planes and helicopters. Portuguese Prime Minister, Jose Socrates told reporters, “we are at a state of maximum risk and France’s help will make it possible to fight the fires more efficiently.”
