A major fire broke out early Monday at a construction materials and paints company in the Bolati region in Dalamanara, Argos.

A strong team of firefighters from Argos and Nafplion that rushed to the scene battled the blaze for more than two hours before managing to contain the fire.

The firefighters remained on scene and continued operations because the fire was still smoldering due to inflammatory materials at the site.

The building was totally destroyed, while the causes of the fire are being investigated by Fire Brigade experts.
