The Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade issued a statement regarding the forest fires in Portugal, writing that they are in constant contact with the local authorities, but are not aware of Hungarian victims. The ministry offered condolences and wished a speedy recovery to the injured people.
Raging forest fires in central Portugal killed at least 58 people, many of them trapped in their cars as flames swept over a road, in what the prime minister on Sunday called "the biggest tragedy of human life that we have known in years.", according to AP.
