54 fires in Hérault on Friday


Firefighters were battling through the day on Friday, to extinguish 54 fires which had started, some of them deliberately.

Throughout the department, the drone of fire planes could be heard.

The Languedoc Living sub-editor reported that he could see multiple columns of smoke from north Hérault right down to the sea, on his way back from Montpellier airport on Friday afternoon.
