A forest fire broke out shortly before 3:00 p.m. on Monday in the Domokos region in Fthiotida. Ten fire engines, 28 firemen are battling to put out the flames, assisted by a team of nine men on foot and two PZL fire-fighting aircraft.
According to the fire brigade, the fire was not considered especially dangerous though it broke out in woods very close to the Lamia-Domokos-Karditsa road so that traffic along the old national highway from Lamia toward Karditsa and Trikala had to be suspended to allow fire engines access to the fire.
