Α wildfire is raging from Wednesday in Diabolitsi Municipality at Western Greece Region, burning down large forests of pine and rural areas. The fire is still active on several fonts. The moderate wind, high temperatures and high flammability of forest fuels, make the work of firefighters very difficult. The areas, Diabolitsi, Ano Melpeia and Kato Melpeia have been ordered to evacuate for precautionary reasons after a fire broke out. According to Fire Service 36 firefighters with 24 vehicles are currently operating in the area, assisted by 18 ground force firefighters, thirteen helicopters and eight planes.
