Tangier, Morocco — Some 1,600 hectares have been destroyed in the northern regions of Larache and Chaoun, according to local authorities.

The situation, however, is witnessing a slight improvement thanks to the decrease of winds strength.

Important reinforcements rushed into the site, including civil protection, police forces and auxiliary forces to assist the teams struggling to fight the blazes for more than 48 hours.

The ground forces are shouldered by important air assistance.
