Dramatic footage shows a man narrowly escaping a wildfire in Tábara, northwestern Spain.
Angel Martin Arjona, 50, had been digging a trench to stop a fire from reaching his town when the flames closed in on him and he had to flee.
He was taken to hospital with severe burns and was now in a very serious condition, a family friend told Reuters.
Passengers travelling on a Spanish train were alarmed as their train momentarily stopped and wildfires could be seen on both sides of the track.
The footage was captured in the Spanish province of Zamora.
A spokesperson from rail operator Adif told the Associated Press that the passengers were never in danger.
