There is an uncontrolled fire at Fonte Cruzada’s site, near Furna, in the Ribeira Brava mountains, with houses nearby.

The strong wind that is being felt is making the firefighters work difficult, while 15 men – eight of them from the Ribeira Brava Volunteer Firefighters with four vehicles – and six vehicles in total. The Madeiran Volunteer Firefighters and Câmara de Lobos Volunteer Firefighters are helping to fight the flames.

The fire started at 6:00 p.m., but at this time (20:15 p.m.) remains far from controlled.
