A couple of large fires on the island today.
The fire that struck this morning in the Valley of the Socorrids can be seen at a great distance.
Carlos Camacho captured the leading image from a different angle, from the sea.
Another large fire is far from being controlled, the fire that set off this morning in the upper zone of Campanário, Lugar da Serra. Photographed here by Tânia Soares
Firefighters are on site as well as the helicopter helping fight the blaze.
Thanks to Oliver for also sending me this image of the fire from the sea.
