  • [01] Wildfires burn forestland

    Firefighting efforts continued on Tuesday to extinguish wildfires in Central and Western Macedonia.

    A fire that broke out at noon on Sunday on Mt. Beles in Kilkis prefecture was burning fir and beech tree expanses. A strong team of 38 firemen on foot, assisted by a 17-strong team of EMAK emergency operations men, but efforts were hampered by the inaccessible terrain. Firefighting planes joined the operation at the first light of day.

    Another blaze was burning forest expanses in the Papranitsa and Kitka areas of the Promachonas district in Aridaia, Pella prefecture, where firefighting efforts were also hampered by the inaccessible terrain.

    A third fire that broke out in an expanse of mixed forest and pasture in the region of Antartiko in Prespes, Florina prefecture, was still burning on Tuesday, as a force of 30 firemen with 14 fire engines and a 30-strong team on foot were battling the blaze.

    Meanwhile, a fire that broke out at Ieropigi in Kastoria prefecture, near the border with Albania, burned 300 stremmas of forestland before being partially contained on Tuesday.

    Also, a fifth fire that broke out in an oak forest in the Vitsi municipality, in a location known as Pimeniko, burned seven stremmas of forestland before being brought under partial control.
