The fire that broke out in the Ponta do Sol municipality, despite the affected area being kept under surveillance by a firefighting team. The information was released just recently by the local town hall.
The Municipality warns, in this regard, that “the routes of the Levadas do Moinho and Nova remain closed, being reopened as soon as the safety conditions are restored. Residents, tour operators and merchants are warned that they should listen to the information provided by the various official entities to resume those routes. Updates will be made on the website of the City Council as other elements arise. “
This seems to have been a large fire as the smoke we could see this morning from Cristo Rei.
