Large wildfires have appeared in Europe since the beginning of this year and have become more frequent, causing more damage and difficult to control, in part due to a wave of mass migration from the countryside to the city, causing the the forest is no longer cared for and is filled with combustible material such as dead tree trunks, leaves, branches and hay.

The European forest in recent times only needed a small spark to create a “hell”, according to Barry Hatton, commentator of the AP in Portugal.
