Fire fighters are trying to contain the blaze that burns in the central part of the island fanned by strong 7 Beaufort velocity winds.
Meanwhile, a major wildfire that broke out in an inaccessible area in Rethymno on the southern Aegean island of Crete last Thursday night has receded.
A total of 56 fire fighters and 26 fire engines, as well as, 20 firemen on foot, three water-bombing helicopters and an aircraft, remain in the region to prevent new outbreaks. The fire has destroyed hundreds of hectares of farm land.
