    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Over 800 firemen are engaged in the fire extinguishing operation as the wild fire continues to spread because of the strong wind, according to the France Bleu radio station.

    The local residents in southern France were instructed not to leave their houses, no one was injured in the fire.
