Crews are fighting what they call a large fire that continues to rage in Vila Nova de Paiva.

Flames are threatening the village of Pendilhe , in the county of Viseu. There are approximately 200 firefighters on scene. A disappointment, they say, as it had calmed down Monday night and became active again Tuesday afternoon.

People who live in the are say they are disapointment to see the "relentless" firefighters work on fighting flames for so long, only to return to more fires soon afer. A lack of paths and roads make it harder to combat the already dry bush fueling the flames.

Some neighbors said they believe the fire is the result of arsonists and not nature.
