Respite as Portugal blaze dies down

Monchique Wildfires which have blazed along a smouldering stretch of Portugal's Algarve for a week died down on Thursday, but fears remained that winds could reignite the flames."It's calmer and we do not have active flames any more, and that gives us some peace of mind," said Rui Andre, the mayor of Monchique near where the fire broke out last Friday. However, he warned against"giving up" in case the fire is once again stoked up by the flames. (AFP)
