While wildfires threaten Yosemite National Park in California, they are also claiming lives and forest lands in Portugal.
According to the Associated Press, about 1,000 firefighters are trying to put out 11 major wildfires in Portugal, with the biggest 200 km from Lisbon. A 23-year-old firefighter died monday night from severe burns he sustained last week. Another firefighter also died in that blaze.
