In the fire-torn department of Gironde, fireworks were allowed to be fired only on the condition that the launches were directed towards the ocean and “a risk assessment will be carried out together with the fire departments,” the publication clarifies.

EU countries, including Greece, Sweden, Germany, Poland, Romania and Austria, are supporting France in extinguishing forest fires. According to the Prime Minister of the country, Elizabeth Born, a record number of aviation equipment is involved in the fight against fires. According to the European Forest Fire Monitoring System (EFFIS), cited by Monde, since the beginning of the year, 48,000 hectares of forest have burned down in France. August 15 is the day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – a holiday of the Orthodox and Catholic churches. In most European countries, the holiday is a day off and is accompanied by mass festivities.
