Good to hear that all is OK Christine.

Who would light a fire in such conditions?

it started at the rubbish dump. Would of been ignited by the smallest shard of glass or a dis guarded cigarette. Rumours of arson are ridiculous

Can't belive this happened! I was on holiday in Kefalos at the time and heard nothing about this until we arrived home today! We were up in Kardamena on the 10th as well just days after! Hope everyone was okay! :-/

we were in Kardamena when the fires were happening. Planes flew over with water but were unable to put it out. Used JCB's to stop it with earth. The smoke was very black and lasted a long time. Heard that the Aegean was affected. People have to evacuate to the beach for brief periods of time. Owner at our hotel said it was a wild fire that started and apparently others had happened in Greece. It is due to the heatwave. George said been scorching temps since June there, hottest been for 3 or 4 years. No one was hurt and the next day everything was back to normal thank goodness. Was scary seeing it from our hotel.
