Greece: Two Fires Break Out in East and West Fthiotis Prefecture

LAMIA — Two fires broke out in Fthiotis prefecture, central Greece, on Monday afternoon, as reported by the Fire Brigade.

The first fire broke out near Lefkada village at Sperchiada in western Fthiotis shortly after 16:00.

Two Pezetel-type aircraft also took off from Lamia airport to help battle the blaze.

A short while later, at 16:15 a second fire broke out in a forest area near Loggitsi village, close to the coastal town of Stylis, in eastern Fthiotis.

Firefighting forces are heading there from Lamia, capital of the prefecture, including aircraft and helicopters. High winds and very high temperatures were reported in the area at the time the fire broke out.
