At least 41 people have died in fires ravaging forests in northern and central Portugal over the past 24 hours, rescuers said Monday, after five people were killed in Spain in blazes sparked by arsonists and fanned by Hurricane Ophelia.

The deaths, which were confirmed by Portugal's national civil protection agency and included a one-month-old baby, come four months after 64 people were killed in the deadliest fire in the country's history in June.

Survivors have described scenes similar to 'the end of the world' as more than 500 wildfires spread across the two countries throughout the weekend.
