High week­end risk of blazes

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Author­i­ties yesterday warned that there will be a high risk of wild­fires break­ing out to­day and to­mor­row in many parts of the coun­try as winds are ex­pected to pick up speed while high tem­per­a­tures per­sist. De­spite a small break in the heat wave that will see tem­per­a­tures dip by a few de­grees in some parts of the coun­try, At­tica, main­land Greece, the Aegean is­lands, Eastern Mace­do­nia and Thrace will re­main at risk of wild­fires be­cause of strength­en­ing winds. Tourists and other trav­el­ers need to be par­tic­u­larly vig­i­lant about en­gag­ing in any ac­tiv­ity that could spark a blaze and should alert the fire ser­vice im­me­di­ately if they see any signs of a con­fla­gra­tion.
