Two people were killed in a wildfire that erupted near the French Riviera. It was fueled by wind and drought and was engulfed in forests, a report said.

According to the report, more than 1,100 firefighters battled the flames, and thousands of tourists were evacuated to safer places.

On Monday evening, the fire began 24 miles inland of Saint-Tropez.

Local officials stated that the fire was set off by strong winds from the Mediterranean Sea and had already burned 7,000 hectares by Wednesday morning.

In the report, Evence Richard, the prefect of Var region, stated to reporters that two people had been killed.

According to the local prosecutor, the bodies were discovered in a house that had been destroyed near Grimaud.

To identify the victims, an investigation was opened, the report added.

Var-Matin, a French newspaper, identified one victim as a male.

According to the prefecture, more than 7,000 people fled their homes, hotels and campgrounds to escape the wildfire, leaving them to seek temporary shelters, the report said.
