The helicopter and the Ribeira Brava and Ponta do Sol Volunteer Firefighters are still currently fighting at 14 hours on Friday – a bush fire at the Lombo do Salão site in Ponta do Sol, which has threatened homes.

Eight elements fight the flames with the support of three vehicles – one heavy and two light.

The alert for the barracks came shortly after 11 am.
