Another heatwave !
« on: July 09, 2017, 08:00:16 am »
Following the first real heatwave of Summer that kicked in late in June and lasted around a week giving way to more normal temps for a few days another has kicked in resulting in the first wildfire of the Season. It occurred up on mount Skopos but it was under control yesterday as the fire planes from the mainland backed up local firefighters. Take care in the heat everyone going over in the coming days !!!

Fires were on Skopos but mainly on Kalamaki side. We were in Strada Marina on Friday night watching, fire crews were kept very busy indeed.

Very concerned to hear of the fires, hope they can be controlled . The greek firefighters certainly have a job on their hands by the sound of it.
