Firefighters from Portugal and Spain worked jointly to contain a forest fire near their shared border.

Europe is experiencing a heatwave that has brought drought and wildfires from Greece to Sweden.

Flames burned through Saturday night and into Sunday in the town of San Vicente de Alcantara, near Badajoz in southwestern Spain.

The fire was stabilised as of Sunday morning but not yet controlled, Spanish emergency services said on Twitter.
