Another fire that scorched at least 800 hectares of land in the picturesque Vaucluse region further inland was believed to be under control on Tuesday morning, local firefighters said.
Col. Eric Martin, of the firefighting unit in the Var region of the Cote d'Azur, said on Wednesday that almost 600 firefighters were trying to contain the flames that had run through 1,300 hectares of Bormes, a magnet for tourists in southeastern France.
More than 12,000 people, including many tourists, who were evacuated due to wildfires in southeast France are today returning to their homes, hotels and guest houses.
In a press release, Var officials said emergency responders had stabilised a fire that ravaged 500 hectares of countryside around the town of La Croix Valmer but blazes affecting a combined 3,300 hectares near Artigues, La Londe-les-Maures and Bormes remained a threat.
The fires first broke out Monday and left eight firefighters and 15 police officers injured.
On Monday, smaller, scattered evacuations were ordered as other fires threatened parts of Saint-Tropez, with more than 100 operations carried out during the three-day siege. "We will do everything possible to find the perpetrators of this fire", Muselier said. The flames are being driven by powerful winds across steep hillsides of dense pine and eucalyptus forest Wednesday.
Engage In Direct Dialogue, US Tells China, India Over Doklam Standoff
Pakistan uses China as its primary instrument to "contain" India. "It reflects that New Delhi has begun to be diffident". Lu said Indian troops "illegally trespassed into Chinese territory".
Firefighters have contained one of the largest fires in southern France and authorities have cleared thousands of evacuees to return to their homes and campsites. Four planes and a fire-fighting aircraft dropped water and retardants on the blazes.
One wildfire last month in Portugal killed 64 people. "It's a lifetime's effort from local people that is destroyed", Arizzi said.
The worst-affected areas continued to be in central Portugal, especially a fire around Serta, 125 miles northeast of Lisbon, which was burning for a fifth day.
The Portuguese Civil Protection Agency says Wednesday that emergency services have brought more than 20 other forest blazes under control as high winds calmed down during the night. The Weather Institute says more than 70 percent of Portugal is experiencing severe drought conditions.
Wildfires also continued to burn in Portugal, where nearly 2,000 firefighters were deployed at six major blazes on Thursday.
