Quantitative assessment of recent trends in fire statistics is important for assessing the possible shifts induced by climate and other environmental/socioeconomic changes in this area. Here we analyse the recent fire trends in Portugal, Spain, southern France, Italy and Greece, building upon an homogenized fire database integrating official fire statistics provided by several national/EU agencies.
