Over 5,000 acres of woodland have gone up in flames in Viotia, as the major fire in Dervenochoria continues for a fourth consecutive day, fueled by the strong winds in the area.

The fire has split into three fronts, the first of which is towards the Panakto, Prasino and Lefka settlemtns, one south of Stefani and a third is to the east, headed for the TITAN facilities.

According to the Fire Brigade nearly 270 firefighters and 30 soldiers, along with about 80 vehicles fought overnight to contain the fire and keep it from further spreading into remote areas. Aircraft were deployed as soon as the sun came up.

Although no populated areas are directly threatened by the fire, the Fire Brigade has been fighting a hard battle outside Prasino village.
