Rome/UNI/Sputnik: Wildfires continue to rage in Spain, destroying nearly 60,000 hectares (1,48,263 acres) of forest areas, Spanish newspaper El Pais reported on Tuesday, citing sources in the affected regions.

Since last Wednesday, wildfires have spread across the area of 29,000 hectares.

This figure does not include the damage caused by fires in the province of Zamora, part of the autonomous community Castile and Leon.

Wildfires in Zamora province destroyed another 30,000 hectares, the newspaper said.

Currently, there are over 30 fires in Spain, with 20 of them still ranging out of control.

According to preliminary estimates, the wildfires are linked to a major heat wave, with the country experiencing temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit), the news outlet reported.
