Poland offered support after the government in Paris appealed for help through the European Union’s Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC), officials said.
According to France’s Interdepartmental Crisis Management Operational Centre (COGIC), the blazes have already consumed over 700 hectares of forest.
Some 3,000 people have been evacuated, according to media reports.
