Large forest fire in Halkidiki, Greece


Over 150 firefighters with 40 water tanks have been struggling since early Monday morning to extinguish a massive forest fire that broke out in the area of Halkidiki, northern Greece. 

The fire broke out in the forest area between Mola Kalyva and Skioni at 7 a.m.

Currently, no houses are under threat; however, according to the latest reports, strong winds impede efforts to control the flames.

The majority of the forest fires in the last few weeks are due to the burning of crop residues, and that's why the Fire Service calls on the citizens to be especially careful and take all necessary measures before burning branches.
