EU countries rush to help France tackle ‘monstrous’ wildfires

British Guardian newspaper reports: France’s biggest blaze has been burning since Tuesday as high temperatures and dry conditions threatened to spread the blaze which has burned more than 7,400 hectares of forest in Gironde.

Firefighters from across the EU rallied, most stationed along a 26 mile (40km) active fire-front in the south-west, where a blaze described as ‘monstrous’ continued to devastate pine forests. The aid rushed to France to help battle wildfires is an unprecedented show of international solidarity.
