Iran condoles with Portugal over lethal blaze

قاسمی

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi on Monday expressed deep sorrow over the recent deadly blaze in Portugal and condoled with the families of the victims.

A raging wildfire has ripped through central Portugal, killing 61 people and injuring dozens more in what officials there describe as the "greatest wildfire tragedy of recent years."

The blaze spread Saturday to the Pedrógão Grande community, forcing residents to flee the area to escape towering flames. Pedrógão Grande is about 120 miles north of Lisbon.
