Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Civil pro­tec­tion author­i­ties yesterday warned of a high chance of wild­fires to­day due to ris­ing tem­per­a­tures and strong winds. The ar­eas that are most sus­cep­ti­ble to fire this week­end are Vi­o­tia, At­tica, Ar­gol­ida, Corinth, Arcadia, Achaia, Ilia, La­co­nia and the is­lands of Evia, Sky­ros, Kythira, Chios and Lesvos. Cit­i­zens are ad­vised to re­frain from any ac­tiv­i­ties – such as bar­be­cues or shrub-burn­ing – that could cause a blaze. Mo­torists have also been banned from pro­tected ar­eas of the Arcadia high­lands, in­clud­ing Mainalo and the Parnonas For­est, from 6 a.m. to­day to 6 a.m. on Mon­day.
