Dervenochoria fire dying out – Fire Brigade remains on alert
The forest fire at Dervenochoria appears to be dying out, with the Fire Brigade announcing late on Tuesday that it is partially under control.
The Tuesday afternoon thunderstorms greatly helped the Fire Brigade, however there are over 100 firefighters, along with a helicopter, on standby in Attica, in case of a resurgence, since strong winds are expected.
The fire, which broke out on Saturday, is estimated to have burned about 5,500 acres of woodland.
