A res­i­dent of Ki­ato, west of Athens, uses a gar­den hose to help put out a fire at an aban­doned fac­tory yesterday. A to­tal of 20 fire­fight­ers and nine fire en­gines were needed to put out the blaze af­ter wooden pal­lets and var­i­ous plas­tic items caught fire. The ex­act cause of the blaze was not im­me­di­ately clear but the Corinth fire ser­vice, which han­dled the op­er­a­tion, said the dis­used fac­tory was re­cently be­ing used by home­less peo­ple look­ing for shel­ter. There were no re­ports of any in­juries as a re­sult of the fire.
