Fires at French campsites trigger evacuation
July 28 , 2015
About 10,000 people had to be evacuated from campsites after fires broke out in southeastern France during the holiday season.
The fires were fanned by hot winds in the drought-hit areas. Three fires broke out in Var region and spread quickly, aided by winds and dry conditions, reports said.
About 30 mobile homes were destroyed at the Frejus camping site alone. More than 200 firemen have been deployed to tackle the blaze.
