The regional government of Sicily has declared a state of emergency and crisis for six months due to the fires that have been raging on the island since the end of July, DPA reported.

Regional President Nelo Musumeci explained in a Facebook post that unusually high temperatures and abnormal weather conditions will continue to pose a risk in the coming weeks.

In Sardinia, meanwhile, a fire brigade in the province of Oristano said a fire had broken out in tourist neighborhoods this morning, with firefighters preventing the blaze from spreading to nearby vegetation. No casualties were reported.

Oristano, on the west coast of the Mediterranean island, has recently faced major forest fires, causing extensive damage.

Unusually high temperatures of over 40 degrees Celsius are causing drought throughout southern Italy, which is intensifying fires. Many of them are thought to have been deliberately planted.
