ATHENS: Fire Service and municipal crews dug firebreaks outside evacuated villages on the Greek island of Lesbos early on Monday halting a wildfire that had threatened scores of homes, authorities said. The overnight work, using excavators and other heavy machinery, took place before six water-dropping planes returned to the southern coast of the eastern Aegean Sea island where the fire was burning for a third day.
Heat wave temperatures continued to make conditions difficult on Monday, mostly in southern Greece where fire warnings remain in effect and national parks are closed to the public.
A major fire in the southern Peloponnese region prompted the evacuation of six villages on Sunday, but conditions have improved and the blaze was contained in areas where homes had been threatened.
At the Dadia National Park, in the northeast of the country, a wildfire burned for a fifth day.
Special operations firefighters were needed to access areas where firebreaks were being set up but fast-changing winds were hampering that effort. (AP) PY PY
