Planes and helicopters joined almost 2,000 firefighters in central Portugal Sunday to battle huge wildfires in a mountainous region where more than 100 people died in huge blazes in 2017.
One seriously injured civilian was evacuated by helicopter to Lisbon, the commander of the civil protection authority for the region, Luis Belo Costa, told a news conference.
Portugal's Civil Protection said some houses were hit by the flames but did not give a specific number.
By 9:30 am (0830 GMT), one of the biggest mobilisations ever seen in the area - including 1,100 firefighters and 340 vehicles - had been deployed to fight the blazes in the heavily forested Castelo Branco region, 200 kilometres (120 miles) north of Lisbon, the rescue services said.
Officials say two of the fires had been brought under control on Sunday and one village has reportedly been evacuated, according to the BBC.
Thirteen airplanes and 243 firefighting vehicles on the ground are battling the blazes, along with 20 soldiers and four bulldozers.
