Vilia continues to be ravaged by wildfires

The wider area of Vilia remains under fire for the fourth consecutive day after an extremely difficult night. The situation remains out of control, while at dawn there were evacuations of settlements, but without sending a message from the 112 service.

How the settlements were evacuated

At 4 a.m., firefighters suggested the precautionary evacuation of residents of five settlements, which were not officially evacuated with a message from 112, but were escorted door-to-door by police in order not to endanger them. Houses are scattered and many remote. These are the settlements of Agia Paraskevi, Karaouli, Thea, Panorama and Titan.

Concern over stronger winds

According to the Fire Department, the constant changes in the direction of the winds create serious problems for the fire brigade, although they are not very intense, but they are expected to intensify after 10:00. It is currently north, which probably favors the situation, as it turns the fire to the south, where there is a lot of burning.
