A large fire yesterday morning in the São Martinho area of Funchal, was eventually extinguished due to many people calling the emergency services.

A large plume of smoke could be seen over Funchal, but this was in fact a controlled fire, where land was being burnt, and firefighters were already in place to over see the task.

Probably not the best month to do a controlled burn of land.
