Firefighters battle roaring wildfires in France

At least one person has been found dead as French firefighters battled to contain the blaze in the hills behind the coastal resort of Saint-Tropez, the regional government said on Wednesday (August 18).

A government official for the Var region, where the fire broke out on Monday (August 16), said the blaze had still not been contained.

Around 20 other people were suffering from inhaling smoke from the fire, whose flames could be seen across much of the Var area.
