Forest fires again

The heat that we have had the last few days has lead to the start of the forest fire season. No big fires so far, one of medium seize around Ourense earlier in the week.

I saw a helicopter with the water-bag flying over my house yesterday, so there might be some smaller local fires as well.

Someone was telling me that these helicopters have been known to fill up the water bags in local swimming pools in the Ourense area during this latest fire. Don't know if it is true, but I guess if it is far to the nearest river.... might as well :)

Greetings from "over 30c" Santiago,
Ivar
