Wildfires – UK

Firefighters have contained a blaze that erupted on moorland in West Yorkshire in northern England, one of the three wildfires that broke out across the United Kingdom as temperatures hit record seasonal highs. The fire, on Saddleworth Moor, burned throughout Tuesday night across about 1.5 square kilometers (370 acres) near the village of Marsden.

Other fires broke out in Edinburgh, on the city’s famed Arthur’s Seat hill, and in the southern English county of West Sussex, in woodland immortalized by A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories.
