People try to extinguish a wildfire approaching their houses in Santiago de Besteiros, near Caramulo, central Portugal, early on August 30, 2013. Five Portuguese mountain villages were evacuated overnight as forest fires intensified in the country's north and centre, officials said today. As many as 1,400 firefighters were dispatched Thursday to tackle the blaze in the mountains and another raging further north in the national park of Alvao, where 2,000 hectares (4,900 acres) of pine forest have already been destroyed, according to the local mayor.
