Fires raging in Hania, Crete and Vravrona, Attica

New wildfires erupted on Wednesday in Sfakia, Hania on the island of Crete and in the coastal region of Vravrona in Attica, even as fire fighters finally managed to bring a fire burning since Tuesday in Lagadakia on the island of Zakynthos partially under control. Fire-fighters remained on the scene in Zakynthos until the fire was fully extinguished, while 29 firemen, 11 vehicles, two teams on foot and a fire brigade helicopter struggled to put out the fire in Hania. The fire on Crete was not threatening inhabited areas at the latest report.
The fire in Vravrona began in a region known as Hamolia and 30 firemen, 11 vehicles and a helicopter were deployed to fight the blaze. No residences were at risk and the fire brigade estimated that the fire would soon be under control.
Also under control was a fire that broke out earlier on Wednesday in Keratea.
