The 2021 European summer season has been one of the most intense for Mediterranean regions that experienced a heatwave in August, determining the onset of several fire events across regions in southern Europe. According to preliminary reports, most of the fires occurred in forest and in protected areas (Natura 2000, https://ec.europa.eu/environment/nature/natura2000/index_en.htm (accessed on 4 August 2022)) thus affecting system particularly sensitive. Moreover, fire have been increasingly affecting areas of Central and northern Europe as an effect of climate change (https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/ip_21_5627 (access date 4 August 2022)).
