AL BAWABA - Algerian wildfires have killed four and injured three on Monday night as reported by the Petra News Agency in Jordan.

Quoting the Algerian APS news agency, it stated that the fires were in the mountainous areas, 100 kilometers east of the Algerian capital.

Firefighters and helicopters rushed to the area to put the spreading blazes out but the residents of the Tizi in the Quzou province still feel threatened as some of the fires erupted near homes and some of the inhabitants were forced to flee.
