Devastating forest fires hit Portugal

Thousands of firefighters, from Portugal and Spain, have been battling devastating forest fires in the central region of Portugal for the last three days. These fires have so far killed 64 people and destroyed many more homes.
These forest fires happen every year in Portugal and a big part of why they do are the huge areas of land which have seen native, more fire resistant trees, ripped out and replaced by non-native eucalyptus trees which are farmed for the paper (pulp) industry. These grow fast and tall, but they also contain an oily substance which catches fires very quickly.
A chance in policy has been on the table for years, but its not moving forward. Maybe this tragedy will set some wheels in motion.

London’s Burning: 27-storey tower block in Notting Hill is a blaze

Round about midnight a small fire started in the Grenfell Tower block in Notting Hill, London. The fire spread quickly and has since engulfed the whole block.
Almost all of the 27-storey building is now on fire and the London fire brigade has been fighting the fire for over 9 hours.
Tens of people have been injured and it is unclear how many people have lost their lives. The fear is the building might collapse.
The images are surreal to say the least, almost out of a Hollywood blockbuster, but unfortunately this is real life and people lost all their belongings and loved ones.
