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 <a href="http://www.donegaldemocrat.ie/news/donegal-news/248643/breaking-news-donegal-firemen-battle-clonmany-mountain-fire.html" target="_blank">Donegal Democrat</a> 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.
