The fire brigade is fighting the flames in Sardinia, where the fire front remains active for the third consecutive day.
The fire started from a car accident, according to the first data collected by the Forest Service of the island. A car exploded and the flames immediately spread to a nearby forest.
As the Civil Protection of Italy announced, even today the strong winds can favor the further spread of the fires, especially in the wider areas of the cities of Nuro and Oristano.
Meanwhile, 8 Italian Canards and helicopters of the fire brigade and the Italian army continue to drop water in the area. Volunteers and firefighters fought against her fire, uninterruptedly, throughout the night, and their tireless effort allowed two hotels to be saved. However, thousands of acres of agricultural and forest land continue to be destroyed.
The Italian press emphasizes the news that Greece and France rushed to assist the firefighting operations with two Canards each, according to a response from the Athens News Agency. The two Canards sent by our country landed at 4.30 in the morning in Alghero.
