  • [01] Fire at Aghioi Theodoroi, Corinth partially under control

  • [01] Fire at Aghioi Theodoroi, Corinth partially under control

    A fire that broke out near the national highway at Agioi Theodoroi in Corinth - which at some point had threatened to burn down homes in the village of Leontari - was partially under control on Sunday night, fire-fighters said.

    The flames actually passed through the gardens and yards of three houses in the village but no damage was reported. It also inflicted relatively limited damage to the woodland where it initially broke out, due to a prompt response by the fire department.

    The fire which originally broke out at 16:00 on Sunday in sparsely forested land alongside the national highway was soon blazing out of control, fanned by strong westerly winds that were sending the flames toward nearby inhabited areas. Though it came very near the Athens-Corinth national highway at the 62nd kilometre, the flow of traffic was not interrupted.

    A force of 120 firemen, 40 fire-engines and another 100 fire-fighters on foot, as well as eight fire-fighting airplanes and six helicopters, are currently taking part in the fire-fighting operation. An investigation into the causes of the fire will be conducted by the fire department's arson investigation force.
