Resurgent forest fire threatens Bordeaux

Resurgent forest fire threatens Bordeaux

A forest fire raging near the southwestern French city of Bordeaux was advancing again Sunday afternoon after strong winds crushed firefighters’ hopes of a break in the weather. Efforts to put out one of the country’s worst fires in five years were considerably stepped up on Sunday, after fire crews had spent almost two days battling the blaze. While most of Bordeaux’s vineyards are situated mostly to the east and north of the city, there are wineries in the fire affected area of Pessac-Léognan, including the famous Château Haut-Brion estate.
