Wild­fires.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Fire­fight­ers yes­ter­day were dis­patched to tackle five for­est fires in the broader area of the Pelo­pon­nese. Three of the blazes were in north­ern Ilia, which bore the brunt of cat­a­strophic fires in 2007, the fourth in Vout­sara, near Me­ga­lopo­lis, and the fifth near the vil­lage of San­tomeri in western Achaia. More than 60 fire­fight­ers were work­ing to douse the blazes in the re­gion and had man­aged to par­tially con­tain them by night­fall, though a con­tin­gent re­mained on standby to avert a rekin­dling due to strong winds blow­ing in the area.
