ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Fifty people were evacuated from their homes on Monday (October 23) as a fire raged through the area of Val di Susa in northern Italy. Residents were seen leaving in the early hours of the morning from the village of Bussoleno, where flames were seen blazing close to houses. Months of drought are thought to have led to the quick spread of the fire which began on Sunday (October 22) and a strong wind helped fan the flames. The fire brigade said hundreds of hectares have so far been destroyed and they are still battling to keep the fire under control.
