Wild­fires.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Fire­men bat­tled fires in Ker­atea, east of Athens, and on the eastern Aegean is­land of Lesvos, the fire ser­vice an­nounced yes­ter­day. The blaze in Ker­atea broke out on forest­land and was pushed to­ward res­i­den­tial ar­eas by strong winds. A to­tal of 40 fire­fight­ers were dis­patched to the scene with 20 fire en­gines, while three he­li­copters and two wa­ter-drop­ping air­craft aided the ef­fort. The fire on Lesvos broke out in an olive grove near the Mo­ria hot spot for mi­grants. Strong winds also ham­pered fire­fight­ing ef­forts but the blaze had been par­tially con­tained by late evening.

Boy ‘sta­ble.’

A 7-year-old boy who suf­fered se­ri­ous head in­juries off the coast of Zakyn­thos when he was hit by a speed­boat last Satur­day, was said to be in sta­ble con­di­tion yes­ter­day. The boy un­der­went neu­ro­surgery on Sun­day and re­mains in crit­i­cal con­di­tion at the Pa­tra Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal in western Greece. Doc­tors said he had sta­bi­lized yes­ter­day and that to­day could be de­ci­sive. The three peo­ple who had been aboard the boat which hit the boy were ar­rested. The ex­act cir­cum­stances of the ac­ci­dent were un­clear.
