Firefighters are putting out the remnants of two wildfires on a Sicilian island that forced fashion designer Giorgio Armani and dozens more to flee vacation villas overnight. The head of the region’s civil protection agency said Thursday that arson was suspected in the wildfires that forced some 30 people to seek refuge in boats or on safer parts of the island of Pantelleria. Armani's press office says he and his and guests evacuated as flames neared the Italian designer's villa but the fire stopped short of the property. Meanwhile, heat wave forecasts for Spain and Portugal could frustrate efforts to control wildfires burning in those countries.
