The fire that broke out this afternoon in a bush zone in Ajuda was in the aftermath but has rekindled, due to the wind in the area.
At this time, the flames are plowing near the seal of Garrison Regiment No. 3 (RG3).
On the ground are six members of the Madeiran Volunteer Firefighters with two vehicles and eight staff of the Fire Department of Funchal, supported by three vehicles.
