Police detained 10 people late on Tuesday in connection with a small fire that broke out in a detention center in Menemi, in the northwestern suburbs of Thessaloniki.
According to police, the fire broke out at around 11 p.m. in a cell where Algerian and Moroccan nationals were being detained following a brawl. It appears that the detainees set the fire on purpose.
The fire damaged bedding in the cell but was extinguished before it could cause any injuries.
The detainees were to face a Thessaloniki prosecutor on Wednesday.
