Flames up to 4oft high are leaping from the blaze in the ‘the Crows’ in the glen of Glenties.
In the past few minutes a local woman has told us: “The helicopter is at the scene again.
“And there are firefighters on the ground helping to fight the fire.
“It’s as bad as anything we’ve seen in the past few days. There’s a forecast for rain and as far as we are concerned it can’t come quickly enough.”
