It's the norm for fire services to request assistance from other areas/countries when things become uncontrollable. These things are in place. Australia does it, the USA and Canada have it in place to call upon assistance from other areas too.
Whilst it's absolutely tragic for people to have died in a fire I don't understand the reason for flagging up a major fire in Portugal on the forum.
