    A fire four times the size of Lisbon is ravaging wooded hillsides in Tondela, Portugal, and has claimed the life of a female firefighter. Nine others have been injured.

    Three have died this month, and several others are in a critical condition. France and Spain have sent planes to help douse the blaze, which is active on three fronts and has been out of control for 48 hours.
