European heatwave: Spain wildfire horror as ‘burning’ heat intensifies across country | Weather | News

The blaze broke out on Sunday in Venta del Moro, west of Valencia and on the border with Queensland. A number of helicopters, planes and firefighters have been dispatched to the Ministry of Environment.

Several units, including soldiers using Kugar helicopters, joined the army.

Efforts by firefighters to extinguish the blaze, which was believed to have been triggered by lightning on Monday, have borne fruit.

However, the regional Meteorological Agency said the winds had changed and disrupted emergency services by spreading the fire.

Valencia President Ximo Puig took to Twitter to express his gratitude to those in control of the fire, and officials are “watching him closely.”

He wrote: “We are monitoring the spread of the Venta del Moro Moro and we hope that the weather will be extinguished as soon as possible.

“We thank all the soldiers for their great work in controlling the fire.”

@Javier_carcel, a social media user, described the fire as “Valencia’s burning lungs” and described how the images made @Manuelvia and the tears.

This is the first time in June that wildfires have erupted in various parts of Spain.

“And he was badly injured in the devastating fire.”

He adds: “If it were summer, the lambs would probably run away.

But now they are too young.

Temperatures above 40C have been observed in the Samora region where the mountain range is located.

The lack of rain throughout the year and the presence of severe storms are believed to have created conditions for the rapid spread of wildfires.

Relative temperatures are felt after the Spanish winter, and some experts say that rising mercury is linked to climate change.
