Wildfires Spread Across Lebanonís Mountainous Areas

BEIRUT Ė Massive wildfires raged in several mountainous areas in Lebanon on Tuesday, leaving over 100 people wounded.

The fires, the worst in decades, broke out a day earlier in Mechref and spread to several areas of Mount Lebanon, with other active breakouts in the northern and southern parts of Lebanon.

A military official told Efe on the condition of anonymity that there were 104 active wildfires and that 200 Lebanese Civil Protection vehicles, Cypriot helicopters as well as civil defense members, the army and the police were trying to extinguish the flames.

The Lebanese Red Cross said in a statement that 18 people were admitted to hospital and 88 others received first aid.

Meanwhile, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Interior Minister Raya al-Hassan said they contacted several European countries and would receive help in the upcoming hours.

In 2013, a fire that lasted several days in northern Lebanon forced the government to ask for assistance from London to put out the fire.
