Hundreds evacuated, airport closed after forest fire in Italy

Hundreds of people were ordered out of their homes and Pisa airport was shut after a huge fire swept wooded hills in Italy’s central Tuscany region. Officials believe the blaze was started deliberately on Monte Serra, which lies between the Tuscan art cities of Pisa and Lucca. Some 700 people were told to leave their homes as a precaution in the towns of Calci and Vicopisano, while schools in the area were all shut.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or of damage to properties. More than 600 hectares of woodland were destroyed and a large cloud of smoke cast a pall over Pisa.
