More than a third of the Kurzeme region firefighters are involved in the action, with colleagues from Rīga and Vidzeme to arrive today. Locals are advised that there can be delays in fire brigades responding to calls.
According to the EU's Copernicus earth observation program, more than 715 hectares of forest and bog have been consumed by flames.
The fire was first reported on the evening of July 17. On July 18 most residents of the village of Stikli were evacuated from their homes as a precaution.
A single fireman has been injured in the fire, which is contained away from residential areas.
