ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Thousands of firefighters across Europe have been tackling wildfires that have blazed through western and southern parts of the continent. Video uploaded on social media and obtained by Reuters shows heavy smoke billowing over a forest in Peyrolles en Provence, France, on the outskirts of the Luberon national park. Firefighters also evacuated thousands of campers and local residents after a wildfire broke out on France's tourist-thronged Riviera coast overnight on Tuesday (July 25-26) In Portugal, about 1,500 firefighters were deployed to extinguish two forest fires in the provinces of Castelo Branco and Santarem, which have forced authorities to evacuate 10 villages so far, Portuguese media reported on Tuesday (July 25).
