According to Regional Fire Chief Andreas Rizos, “the fire is evolving in the Natura area.”
Fire in Zakynthos too!
Meanwhile, a large fire broke out shortly before noon today, in a forest area between the villages of Kiliomenos and Agalas, in an area of Zakynthos that has been badly damaged by heavy fires in recent years.
Seven vehicles with twenty men from the fire brigade and a hiking unit have been rushed to the spot and aerial vehicles are expected to assist in extinguishing the fire.
The new fire does not threaten homes and residents of both villages are helping firefighters to keep their villages from getting close to the fire.
