ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Video captured by witnesses have been uploaded to social media on websites purporting to show the fires which have swept across parts of Corsica on Monday (July 24). The fires destroyed some 1,400 hectares of forest and woodlands in the south of France and the island of Corsica on Monday, authorities said. In one of the videos uploaded by witnesses in Corsica, flames can be seen very close to the road as cars and buses drove past the area. Emergency services personnel were in attendance. The fires were concentrated along the south coast of France as well as the island of Corsica.
