Fire Breaks Out at the Premises of Real FM

ATHENS – A fire broke out at around 3 am on Wednesday in a building that houses the radio station Real FM 97.8 and the newspaper Real News at the junction of Kifissias Avenue and Parnassos Street in Maroussi.

According to the Fire Department, the fire started on the 3rd floor where serious damage was caused. The firefighters transferred a worker, who was in the building, to a hospital with breathing problems, in order to provide her with first aid.

According to sources, the remains of gas canisters were found in the building, while the owner, Nikos Hatzinikolaou, on Twitter, spoke of arson.

The fire was brought under control about two hours later. Eighteen firefighters arrived at the scene with six vehicles.
