ROMANIA (WNCT) — More than 300 firefighters, including a team sent from Romania, were at the scene of a wildfire that was still burning in southeast France on Tuesday, August 22, days after it first broke out, BFMTV reported.
Footage taken by a volunteer group shows aerial firefighting efforts underway as smoke billows from a hillside in Charousse in the Hautes-Alpes department.
According to 20 Minutes, the fire was one of the largest in France this summer.
The fire broke out as a late-season heatwave gripped the country.
