Fire threatens Calheta

A large fire in Calheta is now threatening homes. The area of Rochão  in Calheta has been on fire for some hours now, but the wind is pushing the fire further towards a built up area and houses are now close to being consumed by the fire.

Shopping Centre in Sao Pedro Funchal is now being burnt by flames, fire fighters are at the scene.

Seven firemen have been transported to hospital after fighting fires in Funchal, it is not yet known the reason.

Power is out in Calheta, the area is in darkness and an explosion was heard.
