Fire in Portugal

Although we are still in England(groan) I have been keeping an eye on things in Portugal.The heat has been building for a number of weeks and fires have broken out in the south and centre of the Country.So far a small number of people have died including 2  fire fighters plus up to 13 people arrested in connection with the fires....

When looking for a place to buy I was very aware of the danger of forest fires and wanted a place with water and good access.Although we are down in the valley ,down a track our access up to the village is ok.The building itself is positioned in the middle of terraces and when the land is cleared there is a good space between the buildings and the mimosa that edges the terraces.Frightening though....
