TERUEL, Spain, (AFP) - Extreme weather has killed and injured dozens of people across Europe, with Spain, France and Italy hit by summer wild fires and parts of central Europe deluged by storms, officials said Friday. While the deadly fires spread in Spain, France, Italy and Greece, violent storms slammed central Europe. Nine people were killed and dozens injured as the storms felled trees and electricity poles, ripped off roofs and caused local flooding. Western and southwestern Poland were hardest hit, with hurricane-force winds reaching 130-kilometres-per-hour in some areas. Seven people died in all, while 82 sustained serious injuries requiring medical attention, Polands national fire brigade spokesman Pawel Fratczak told AFP In Austria, hail pounded 60,000 hectares of crops Thursday, causing estimated damage of $28.4m, according to the Osterreichische Hagelversicherung insurance company. Meanwhile, at least eight people were known to have died in the fires sweeping across several European countries in the past three days. A badly burned firefighter died in a Barcelona hospital on Friday, a hospital spokesman said, taking to six the number of firefighters killed since wildfires broke out across Spain earlier in the week. Four of his comrades were killed almost instantly at the scene, while one was still in hospital on Friday with burns to 75pc of his body. The driver of a firefighters truck was killed in the province on Thursday after his vehicle fell into a ravine as it avoided flames. Helicopters and civil protection boats plucked about 120 people to safety from a beach at Capo Pecora in the southwest of Sardinia on Thursday night after they became trapped by flames. On Thursday, a 58-year-old shepherd died as he attempted to rescue his flock. A farmer died of a heart attack as he tried to escape the fires. Five French firemen were injured battling blazes that have destroyed more than 4,000 hectares of forest and brush on the island of Corsica. Ten houses and about 50 cars have been destroyed. A fire service officer said one fire had been brought under control, but two others, including one near the main city of Ajaccio, were still spreading. One of the blazes was tearing through pristine forest in the Valle Mala, northeast of Sartene. In Turkey, more than 200 firefighters battled through the night to control a blaze which started on a dump but spread to a wood in the resort of Bodrum, the Anatolia news agency said.
