To compound the tragedy, an aircraft commissioned to damp down the blaze with water from the sky crashed

At least 64 people have died and over 150 injured in the blazes, which broke out in Pedrogao Grande over the weekend and spread quickly to other areas.

More than 1,000 firefighters and almost 400 fire engines are still battling to control the flames.

Meanwhile, there have been conflicting reports about whether a water-dropping plane involved in the operation to tackle devastating fires had crashed.
