Tough week for coun­try’s fire­fight­ers

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A fire­fighter douses a burnt-out firetruck as an­other stands by, fol­low­ing a wild­fire that broke out in Lag­o­nissi, east of Athens, yes­ter­day. The fire burned one house and in­jured four fire­fight­ers. High winds and tin­der-dry con­di­tions fanned flames that sparked across sev­eral parts of the coun­try this week, in­clud­ing the Sa­ronic is­land of Spet­ses, Ilia in the western Pelo­pon­nese, and Ka­lyvia, east of Athens. The civil pro­tec­tion au­thor­ity says the risk of fires will re­main high to­day across much of cen­tral and south­ern Greece.
