A fire engine is seen near a blaze in Kotronas, eastern Mani, south­ern Greece, yes­ter­day. Fire­fight­ers worked into the night try­ing to con­tain fires in At­tica as well as Achaia and La­co­nia in the Pelo­pon­nese, which de­stroyed for­est and farm­land. Re­ports said sev­eral houses were threat­ened by the flames. Mean­while, the fire bri­gade’s union crit­i­cized Al­ter­nate Ci­ti­zens’ Pro­tec­tion Min­is­ter Nikos Toskas’s visit on Thursday to the ser­vice’s com­mand cen­ter as a PR stunt. ‘We wish to be­lieve... the min­is­ter un­der­stood the true ex­tent of the prob­lems dog­ging the ser­vice which he has so far failed to solve.’
