    [02] Fire at Zevgolatio blazing for third day, new blaze near Rio

    AMNA/A fire that began Monday at Zevgolatio in Corinthia was still blazing fiercely on Wednesday, fanned by strong winds that started up during the night. In spite of the fire brigade's efforts, the fire was burning uncontrollably on Wednesday and heading toward Archaies Kleones, having passed through Spathovouni.

    A force of 41 manned fire engines from Corinthia and surrounding prefectures was battling to put out the flames, assisted by teams on foot from Tripoli, Patras and Athens and six Canadair water-bombing aircraft from the air. All fire-fighting forces in the Peloponnese are currently on alert.

    Meanwhile, a major wildfire was raging Wednesday morning in the region of Argyra, Achaia prefecture, threatening populated areas in the communities of Argyra, Kato Kastritsi, Magoula, Sella and Platani, north of Rio.

    A strong team of 70 firefighters with 21 fire engines, two firefighting planes and a water-dropping helicopter were battling the blaze.

    A heavy cloud of smoke has covered part of northern Patras.

    The blaze broke out at dawn Wednesday, and was heading in the direction of Kato Kastritsi and Drepano, and firefighters were battling to keep the flames away from homes.

    An emergency plan was in place to evacuate the threatened communities if needed.

    Airborne means were conducting water-dropping flights over the area, despite strong winds and thick smoke.

    Meanwhile, another fire front broke out Wednesday morning in Achaia, this time in the Tzailo region, burning a forest expanse. Local firefighters were being assisted by aerial means and colleagues from neighboring Ileia prefecture.
