Heatwave sparks major wildfires in Spain

More than 1,350 residents have been evacuated from their homes in the Aragon region of Spain as a wildfire spreads through a forest amid a lingering heatwave.

Regional president Lavier Lamban said five villages were evacuated as flames devoured hills 230 miles north-east of Madrid.

The evacuees, who include the residents of a retirement home, were transferred to nearby towns.

The fire broke out over the weekend and windy conditions are now fanning the flames, causing a large plume of smoke.

Meanwhile in Portugal, the National Civil Protection Authority said almost 100 firefighters are tackling a wildfire that broke in the forests of Alcobertas, north of Lisbon.
