The fire that broke out early Thursday afternoon in Sao Vicente is still active.

The fight against the flames is only done by land, with several professionals from the corporations of São Vicente and Porto Moniz, supported by the Madeiran Volunteers.

The POCIF helicopter came on the scene and during the afternoon and made several discharges. However, as night fell, only land resources remained in place, and although the flames are not threatening people and property at this time, the fire is not yet cleared, and work may continue into the night.
