The fire is “at an early stage” and has “an active front,” the District Relief Operations Command (CDOS) of Lisbon said, saying it was plowing in a bush zone.

At 5:20 pm, the Lisbon CDOS said that the means of firefighting, which will be added to those already on the ground, are being strengthened.

Civil Protection does not yet have information on whether there are villages at risk.

The website of the National Emergency and Civil Protection Authority (ANEPC) states that the fire broke out in the town of Raposeiras, in the municipality of Sintra, in a forested area.
