At least 10,000 people were evacuated in the vicinity of the epicenter of the fire, located near Landiras, a locality where, together with Teste-de-Buch, 21,000 hectares of pine trees were destroyed in mid-July.

According to Éric Brocardi, spokesman for the French National Federation of Firefighters, the flames remained uncontrollable on Thursday morning, although the work of the contingent of uniformed personnel managed to contain their spread.

From Tuesday night until yesterday, the fire devastated 6,200 hectares, but in the early hours of the morning only 600 hectares suffered the same fate, he said.

France is experiencing a favorable scenario for the spread of fires, in the face of an unprecedented drought, which has the 96 metropolitan departments on alert, high temperatures and winds.
