Portuguese people mourn over forest inferno on Saturday

According to report, Portugal has declared three days of mourning for the 62 victims of one of the country's deadliest forest inferno.

Reuters News says, "the wildfires spread fast on Saturday, and across several fronts."

Four children are among the victims, many of whom were found dead inside their cars as they tried to flee the central forested region of Pedrógão Grande, BBC report said.

At least, 100 of firefighters are continuing to tackle the blaze on several fronts.

Some of the hundreds of firefighters tackling the blaze were injured.

Prime Minister Antonio Costa called it "the greatest tragedy we have seen in recent years in terms of forest fires".

The prime minister said it was thought to have been sparked by a lightning strike.

According to the prime minister, just 11 fires are still active but he said the authorities were "particularly worried about two of them".
