Sunseekers in the French Riviera appeared determined to have their summer fun Tuesday, even as approaching wildfires seemed like they could be a little too close for comfort.
Hundreds of firefighters are battling blazes, fanned by high winds, in more than a dozen zones in the Riviera region of southern France. Four firefighters have been injured.
A local official, tweeting on Tuesday, a day after the fires started, said about 100 people were evacuated in Ramatuelle, while five hectares burned in Saint-Tropez.
There have been no reports of injuries among residents or tourists.
