Briton’s in Portugal fear wildfire will destroy their land – Daily Mail

Hundreds of guests were told to leave the Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa on the Algarve, Portugal, just after midnight, as flames  suddenly became visible from the hotel. Staff, who confirmed that a majority of guests were British, said they had been ordered to evacuate as the forest fire came within a mile of the hotel. The Monchique wildfire broke out in a eucalyptus forest in an area called Perna da Negra in the wake of a heatwave which have seen temperatures soar to 46 degrees in some parts of the country. Officials have sent 810 firefighters, 226 vehicles and nine airplanes to the area in an attempt to bring the blaze under control.
