High temperatures and strong winds have sparked dozens of blazes across the country in the past couple of days, with firefighters still battling a fire that began on Thursday in Malesina, Fthiotida, last night.
“The conditions are against us and there is a danger it may spread from the pine forest to residential areas because of the strong winds,” Nikos Liolios, the mayor of Lokrida, a municipality in the vicinity, told Kathimerini.
In Corinth, a blaze that started on Thursday and was brought under partial control on Friday destroyed three homes and a car in the area of Galataki.
A firefighter was also injured.
Another fire was still burning Friday night on the outskirts of Kamatero, northwest of Athens.
