In photos: Portugal forest fires kills more than 60
This weekend a raging fire in central Portugal killed more than 60 people, including at least 30 motorists trapped in their cars. Several houses were also destroyed by the flames.
The fire started Saturday during an intense heatwave -- temperature soared over 40°C and thunderstorms. Some reports speculated that lighting striking a tree may have triggered the carnage.
Around 1,600 firefighters assisted by airplanes and helicopter were working to contain the damages. France helped with three firefighting planes, while Spain also sent two water-bombing aircraft to tackle the fire.
There are fears that death toll could rise as several people were missing.
