Alert Fires in/around Leiria, Portugal

Topics realted to Hazards on the camino de Santiago
Time of past OR future Camino
Camino Frances, Portuguese, Finisterre, Muxia
Just curious if anyone has walked through the area of Leiria lately and if so, what is the status of the fires and damage to structures, the route itself and most importantly, the human toll? Are albergues even open in the area at this time?

We've made a spur of the moment decision to walk from Porto on the central route in the first week of October. Anyone walking at the moment? How busy is it and how is accommodation holding up...
Hallo, I lost my airpods on my camino Portugues between Porto and Santiago. Thought they were in my luggage but now at home and know I lost them. Somebody maybe found them? Thanks! Sita 🌷
