Drone footage captured smoke rising from the hillside of Clonmany, County Donegal, Ireland, on May 8 from a wildfire that rapidly spread. Three fire brigades battled to get the fire under control in Clonmany. A dry spell and strong breeze contributed to the fire’s growth. Senior fire officer Kevin McGarvey told the Donegal Democrat that a number of the fires have been started through carelessness. The fire department has fought to extinguish 50 fires across the county since April 30th.
