This afternoon, local residents were outraged when a series of fireworks were set off in Estreito de Câmara de Lobos.
With the Portuguese Institute of Atmosphere and Sea (IPMA), placing Madeira under an orange alert for heat and UV radiation, the use of fireworks and other pyrotechnic mediums are currently prohibited.
Many took to social media, and media pages to air their concern, stating that those responsible should be punished.
Madeira will remain under an orange alert until 6.00 pm on Monday.
