3:05 pm
so everybody i think was taken back by the fact that the fire spread so quickly by very strong winds. and by mid afternoon yesterday, you were mandatory evacuation some road closures by evening. the blaze of expanded through so much scrub line through the mountains of occupations were taking place in 7 or 8 villages. so yes, my assessment would be, this comes in my opinion about the last 2 years of covering these things, possibly the worst i've ever seen. and as you say, they have just spread so quickly over the last day, of course that made it necessary for the 5 fighting effort to, to become international. tell us a bit more about that. indeed. i mean, chris's equipped to deal with fires, but i don't think anything on the scale and we've had a life of 40 degrees of over the past few days. so there's a lot of wild porch scrub land. so the firefighters initially yesterday lunch time,
3:06 pm

3:07 pm
they weren't being such fool. but obviously everybody was in the shop when, when they were discovered, also the end of the fire department said something interesting. it's kind of echoing what the minister said. he said, this is the worst fires a professional working in this, in this, in this sphere, this occupation in the history of san christian. he said he's never seen anything like it and the public and now being warned to take precautions. of course, the usual precautions don't throw cigarettes in all the roads, no barbecues, in mountainous areas, basic common sense. they're trying to draw that message home now. and that was nice and moly, speaking to us from cypress, where at least 4 people have been killed in what's being called the worst wildfire to hit the island in some decades. nathan, molly, thank you very much. thank you. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making headlines today. at least 31 people have been killed in a plane crash in the philippines. a military plane missed the runway during landing

3:10 pm
a building here in surfside that is pottering. it is structurally on down. and although the b b i of this storm is, is not, not likely to pass over this direction. you could feel gusts in this area. we don't know, it's definitely a possibility. the instability of the size has been a major challenge for the search operation. it was already forced to pause for almost 24 hours on thursday. after dangerous movement was detected in the debris. it's hope, the demolition will reduce the dangerous faced by the crews. when they resume combing through the rubble and that the families now living in limbo will soon have certainty about the fates of their loved ones. to football. now in the final 4 teams in the european championship on now fit, it comes off to england, hammered ukraine for neil in the last match of the quarter finals on saturday night

3:12 pm
talented english science turn off at major tournaments and crumble under the expectations and the pressure these england theme does not seem to have the same hang ups as those england seems of all they. they look comfortable within themselves. they look comfortable yesterday against crime, for example being the favorite playing the role of the favorites. they didn't feel the pressure they tried on it and, and i think it's this that makes england real contenders at this tournament. there's a belief in this team that they belong in the latter stages of major tournaments, a belief that they can go on to win the thing. and that is something that i think england seems at the past of lack. okay. they've got this real momentum behind them don't they? denmark have also made it throughout the, beating the czech republic, but they are under dogs. do they stand a chance? well, if you want to think about a month and then let's talk about them lately. yeah, look another great result for them yesterday to golden. the 1st off, i really think nicely for this one to go to showcase their strengths very well. say a government's that piece, thomas delaney putting ahead or away as to open the scoring and then some excellent
3:13 pm
women back play from you. i can model one of the stars of the tournament for me as to setup cost it all the to make it to $1.00. you know, it's strange. now looking back at the opening games of this tournament and thinking about how bleak it looks to denmark, you know, the trauma, of course, that they will suffer with christine erickson's cardiac arrest. and simply the fun . they lost the 1st 2 games of the tournament. they were on the brink of going out . now you look at the mis momentum game changing the medicine they have is still there and that's something that can disappear very, very quickly. but if they can keep going, they have a real chance of beating england and making it all the way from the final lots of come back stories in this 20. when isn't it? i'm going to put you on the spot. now lee, we have 2 teams. do you expect to make it to the final next sunday? okay. i would have to say in spite of them awesome and, and i think that calmness and not professionalism that i talked about with england . i think that should be enough to allow them to hope that juggernaut get through italy. spain is a hard one to predict, i think not least because as pain us in consistent in finishing. and italy,
3:14 pm
though i have to say, have been the most impressive to restore them and so far and i think they'll continue that. i think it'll be england again bitterly wembley next on the hill. but let's see what happens from the w. suppose. thank you very much. and there was one incident which upset denmark and fans that day. diamond back to the capital of azerbaijan, security stoffer moved around by flag held out by the dan, you supporters. of course it comes off the governing body. you. i was heavily criticized earlier in the tournament for not allowing the munich stadium to be lit up in the rainbow colors. if latest affair has been planned by the l g b t, q, community and you are watching dw news. we'll have more headlines at the top of the hour. i'm going to leave you now with images from the natural history museum in paris, which is using old men to reality to bring extinct animals back to life. enjoy. ah

3:16 pm
thrown off course during the qualifying ground. not least for sports heroes. actually it was a slap in the face, but now we just have to fight their mobilizing superpowers. when i'm fired up and ready, down during walk down the rocky go to tokyo. of july 19 w. ah. we the the the, the. 6 the, these athletes have a dream, it's more than
3:17 pm
a big competition. the olympic games. i just want to be part of it. the biggest sporting event in the world and what's your very best and then you can beat anyone in slot. but the panoramic has thrown everything into doubts. will the game take place at all as well? we don't know if there will be any competition that's pretty difficult to deal with . like how athletes dealing with the challenges with the pandemic, we joined full on that road to tokyo to already qualified to we're still fighting for their tickets. will this both thing dream come true with the fence? alexandra and dolo hasn't yet secured her place at the games today. after months of waiting and training, she's finally back in a competition. she's finally feeling her adrenalin return,
3:18 pm
even if it wasn't there to help her pack her bag. i actually had to ask myself several times. if i got everything i needed from usually i just get it right automatically. with international travel off the cards, the competitors, the old german, it's nonetheless an important test of the month of inaction. the and don't still have to qualify for the olympics. and today's tournament is an important indicator of the level of competition. she was the favorite in light. take the disappointingly, she wasn't the one who won phil days like this
3:19 pm
irreplaceable for an athlete like alexandra and dolo. even just hearing that late or ready go from the referee or something else coming back to the starting line as well. of course we do that in training as well, but it all together a bit. every now and again, we take the time, but it's not the same as it is here about nicholas heroes. hi jump marie le wrong. young flash has already booked her place at the games. but while she can train, she hasn't been able to compete since 2019 she supported by her family in the black forest. here in fryeburg is where her sporting journey began. it's really nice to be here and it was where i started my sporting career. i never had a really serious goal. i just enjoyed it. of course i wanted to improve, but i never made it to my goal to jump to meters or even higher. i just wanted to have fun and i used to jump
3:20 pm
a little higher at every competition. and i thought if this keeps out, that could turn out well. i think that that she made it all the way to the lympics in 2016 age 25. she placed 7th in rio since then pressure and media interest have been constance. visit her mother, help the athletes. they grounded her. so he had to what this is where her wrists are and her family and everyone else. it's important for her to come back to her room to reenergize, to cool off what to just be my home. not necessarily the athletes that everyone always asks after. i think that's important for her, but i must be done. over human flesh wants to go to tokyo this year, but corona and look down on testing her patients. the local rules are strict and include a nightly curfew from 8 p. m. us and i'll be still happy when it's finally over to

3:23 pm
the furthest in florida. it's the biggest event. there is, he wasn't nominate, it's a 2020, but corona has given her a new chance when tokyo, with this time, the squad where we shuffled a dream is alive, but the competition is did. the competitions have been cancelled and training conditions are tricky. as a result of the corona restrictions the painting fit and i'm really missing group training because there we have different partners and we always get in a lot more practical unless one is february 2021. and alex and dolo is back in kilo in her daily life and the time of grown up jogging in. the park is a welcome escape from us. i've

3:25 pm
the inevitable happens. mine was painted me. my coach called me and said there re nominating the previous anomalies and i'm not one of them on the stuff i've been. i'd only be there if someone else can make it. or you might find like the one i've except it was painful at 1st because i had a goal. i've been training towards it for a long time and it was me. so i'm not easy, it's something i think about every day. of course you end up asking yourself, is it worth carrying on what you have to look at it in a different light and i still got a chance for parents. i'd like to try and take it on a madeline fold man's road to tokyo and here her next aim is parish 2024.
