On August 22, firefighting planes from Italy, France, and Portugal, filling themselves with water to contain the wildfire, are flying over the dam located about 100km north of Lisbon, Portugal. A nationwide wildfire broke out in Portugal due to the heat wave reaching 45℃ and the resulting drought. The wildfire has already burned 140,000-ha land, killing 15 people, including 10 firefighters.
