Firefighters try to extinguish a forest fire in Cova da Muda, near Sao Bras de Alportel, on July 21, 2012. More than 1,000 fire fighters and rescuers backed by helicopters and water bombing planes battled today to douse a forest fire in Portugal's southern Algarve region, a top tourist draw. The flames, raging since July 18, have ravaged 5,000 hectares (12,350 acres) and destroyed at least five houses near the town of Tavira east of Algarve's capital Faro.
