Firemen backed by two firefighting aircraft and a firefighting helicopter have succeeded in containing the wildfire at the location of Rapouni on Mount Mainalos, in the Arcadia prefecture, in a region where another wildfire had occurred in the year 2000.
According to initial assessments, the wildfire was probably started by lightning and was noticed on Sunday when it became extensive.
Another wildfire broke out in the region of Thana, in the prefecture of Tripoli, on Sunday, but firemen managed to extinguish it before it could spread.
