  • Le Portugal doit faire face à des dizaines de feux de forêt de nombreuses personnes ont dû quitter leurs domiciles

Bombardiers d'eau et hélicoptères ont repris jeudi leur ballet entre la mer et les montagnes pour tenter d'enrayer la progression du feu qui a déjà calciné plus de 21.000 hectares.

Les pompiers et les gendarmes avaient dû évacuer d'urgence dans la nuit de mercredi à jeudi des habitants de localités proches de Silves, ville vers laquelle progressait l'incendie. "Il ne faut pas avoir l'illusion que cet incendie va s'éteindre dans les prochaines heures", avait-il déclaré lors d'une conférence de presse à Lisbonne.

Dans l'après-midi, l'accalmie a permis aux villageois de quitter les écoles, gymnases et centres d'accueil de la région pour regagner leur domicile. "La police nous a demandé de nous préparer à être évacués, ce que nous avons fait (.) nous avons gardé un oeil sur le feu, tout cela est très éprouvant pour les nerfs", a raconté à l'AFP Gerry Atkins, un Anglais de 80 ans habitant près de Silves.

Le Portugal a enregistré jeudi plusieurs records de température, dont la plus élevée a été de 45,7 degrés à Mora (sud), selon un dernier bilan de l'Institut portugais de la mer et de l'atmosphère (IPMA). Les services d'urgence ont mobilisé 350 pompiers supplémentaires pour combattre les flammes dans la nuit de dimanche à lundi. "19 d'entre eux sont des pompiers" a précisé Patricia Gaspar. Le plus récent en 2016 avait duré dix jours et ravagé 3 700 hectares. Des centaines d'habitants et de vacanciers ont été évacués des alentours de Monchique, un bourg de 6000 habitants à 164 kilomètres au sud de Lisbonne. Le soleil a été caché par une épaisse fumée noire, près de Portimao.

La fumée de l'incendie a atteint jusqu'aux plages de l'Algarve mais le vent qui souffle vers le nord avait dégagé le ciel jeudi.

Les représentants des pompiers professionnels se sont interrogés sur les défauts d'organisation qui expliqueraient pourquoi malgré un impressionnant dispositif mis en place cette année pour éviter les drames de 2017, quand deux vagues d'incendies ont fait 114 morts, il est si difficile de venir à bout du feu de Monchique.

Les feux de forêt touchent également l'Espagne voisine.
