Fires above Ponta do Sol.

Fires above Ponta do Sol18.00:  According to the Diario, some urban areas of Ponta do Sol are currently threatened by a fire that started this morning at Ribeira da Tabua, in Ribeira Brava. The fire advanced during this morning and, by 13.00, had already reached higher areas above Ponta do Sol. The flames have continued to sweep the forest area during the afternoon and have now put several houses at risk.
A few hours ago the fire was already visible from Calheta, but is also becoming visible from other parts of the island. Will update here.
21.00 just posted an updated video to our Facebook page
