Corsica wildfire destroyed 2,000 hectares of forest
The fire, which erupted on Sunday in the north of the Mediterranean island, was still raging Monday, as scores of firefighters battled to put out the flames.
Rainfall, a sharp drop in temperature and a change in wind direction meant the fire no longer posed a threat to villages nearby, the local emergency service said.
A house and a sheep barn were damaged by the flames, it added. ■
