A forest fire that devastated the hinterland of the popular resort of Saint.Tropez on the Cote d’Azur has killed one person, local authorities announced today.

This is the first victim of the biggest fire this summer in France.

More than 1,200 firefighters are involved in the firefighting action today.

In the middle of the summer season, a fire broke out not far from the rest area on the highway, and the fire spread to more than 5,000 hectares.

A strong seasonal wind from the Mediterranean Sea is fanning the flames.
