Over 1,200 firefighters battle 31 blazes in Portugal this weekend

The high alert status for most of Portugal is well deserved as over 1,200 firefighters battle 31 blazes this Sunday.

Sertã and Coimbra are the most serious affected with the A13 cut-off to traffic as 11 helicopters and aircraft swoop in to dump water. Temperatures hover in the mid-30s with winds spreading fires faster than they can be contained.
