Meanwhile, the Fire Brigade has also announced that it has managed to control fires that broke out on Sunday at the landfill in Fyli, as well as in Lagonisi, Keratea, Vravrona (in Markopoulo) and in Myrsinochori, Messinia.

The General Secretariat of Civil Protection has issued a warning for high risk of fires breaking out on Monday in the areas of Thessaloniki, Halkidiki, Sporades and Rhodes.
