  • [01] Wildfires mostly under control

  • [01] Wildfires mostly under control

    Greek fire brigade officials on Monday afternoon appeared confident that efforts to extinguish the last remaining wildfires in Attica prefecture would be successful by nightfall, with the emphasis now shifting to preventing any rekindling of fires.

    The most ominous wildfire still not under control was reported near Mt. Kithaironas, where Attica prefecture and Viotia prefecture converge at the Gulf of Corinth. That blaze caused the evacuation of the Porto Germeno resort earlier in the day.

    Another wildfire on the island of Hios was under control, while a wildfire burning hilly brushland east of the harbour town of Karystos was still not extinguished.

    Earlier, the massive multi-front wildfire that erupted on Saturday in several spots of northeast and east Attica prefecture was reported as partially under control by early Monday afternoon, with concern swifting to the wildfire that broke out Sunday night near Mt. Kitheronas.

    On the Ionian island of Zakyntos, a total of four wildfires erupted since Friday, and continued to burn throughout Monday in the areas of Maries and Stroggylo. Finally, smaller wildfires in the northern Peloponnese and on the central Aegean island of Skyros were under control.
