I leave you a little video of the "ridiculous" affected area. Only 0.2Ha

I must say that apparently on the Iberian peninsula (so including Portugal) fortunately not so many fires are reported so far this year. Other years have been worse.
People have become more careful I assume and few accidents take place. The warning level is as high as ever. The same holds for France. I have not really a good view on the other countries around the Mediterranean but, following the news, I believe this year has not been as bad as some years in the past (remember the great fires in Portugal and Spain 2017/18 I believe)
This little fire shows - probably also by good fortune and good winds - there is a good fire management and competent fire brigade available.
I did see reports of larger fires in other areas in Spain but nowhere it got out of hand.
Good for you!
At the end of September, I will remove the warning under the pwsFWI table that behavioural testing is still under way.
I have a firm believe pwsFWI corresponds well with standing Fire Weather Indices and the season in Australia and now in Europe has been proving that.
