The flames continue to plow Palheiro Ferreiro area and are already burning areas where there are many homes. According to a source heard by the JM, the fire-fighters are already defending the areas next to the dwellings, in order to defend the population of Palheiro Ferreiro.
The road that connects Vale Paraíso and Palheiro Ferreiro is already closed. Meanwhile, teams of Firemen of Câmara de Lobos will join in the fight against the flames.
According to the JM, JP agents went to the site early in the evening after a fire that was considered strange had started, since there was nothing to indicate any source of ignition in that place.
Sources who are following the process remind our newspaper that the fire started shortly before 9 pm, at the end of a day without great heat. In this area during the morning there were showers of rain.
As the JM has revealed, the fire above Campo do 1.º de Maio is a cause for concern for the authorities who have already moved various material and human resources to the site.
The wind is making operations very difficult.
Dozens of people follow the evolving situation on the street, where the climate of fear is notorious, despite the action of fire-fighters to defend the homes that are apparently most at risk. It is also believed a fire started near the car inspection place, but this was soon extinguished.
A fire-fighter told JM that the forest fire that started in the Vale Paraíso and Palheiro Ferreiro zone began next “to a restaurant in Vale Paraíso, and is already descending downhill due to the wind. It is already close to residences. This is dangerous, it’s ugly and it’s not easy to face the flames. ”
