Share post:

The fire that reactivated this afternoon in Lordelo, in the municipality of Paredes, has already been subdued, and the A42 highway has already reopened to traffic, a Civil Protection source told Lusa.

“The A42 has already been reopened and the fire is dominated,” a source from the sub-regional command of Emergency and Civil Protection of the Metropolitan Area of Porto (AMP) told Lusa at about 18:15.

According to the same source, the opening of the A42 took place at 17:16, after being cut at 12:56, shortly after a “reactivation with great intensity” of the fire that started on Sunday.

According to the Civil Protection website, by 18:23 the fire in the bush area was classified as being “in resolution”, with 82 operational staff and 33 ground resources on site.

However, near the site of the fire, where there were 111 operatives, 39 land resources and two air resources, Civil Protection registered, at the same time, another occurrence that mobilizes 21 operatives, three land resources and one air resource.

According to a source from the AMP Civil Protection, this is a normal displacement of means in the context of fighting the fire.

At the end of Sunday afternoon, a source from the sub-regional command had said, by 19:50, that the fight against the flames was in the completion phase, but today there was a reactivation.

The alert for the first fire had been given at 14:40 on Sunday, and the flames had already forced the A42 highway to be cut in both directions, near the Seroa junction, in Paços de Ferreira, for about half an hour.
