France, huge fire in the southwest: 6,000 people evacuated

Massive fire in southwestern France, where around 6,000 people were evacuated and at least sixteen houses were destroyed.

An important highway near the city of Bordeaux was closed as a precaution.

More than 60 square kilometers are burned in the Gironde and Landes regions, an area known for its pine forests and already devastated by flames last month.
