Another difficult day dawned in Attica, as the battle with the flames continues. The main fronts are located in Varybobi, Thrakomakedones and Malakasa.
The air force started operating very early in the morning, at a time when ground forces were relentlessly pursuing the difficult task of extinguishing the fire. Around 6 in the morning, 112 sent a message for the evacuation of the areas of Agia Skepi, Agia Paraskevi, Kapitenia, Vrysaki, Kouremenos Hill to Drosia, through Marathonos Avenue.
“If you are in the areas of Agia Paraskevi, Agia Skepi, Kapitenia, Vrysaki, Lofos Kouremenou, evacuate now to Drosia via Marathonos Avenue. Forest fire in your area “specifically states the message sent to the residents' mobile phones by the Civil Protection. These are areas around Varybobi.
The night was nightmarish for the inhabitants of Varybombi and the Thrakomakedones, as the big fire that has been burning since Thursday, entered the settlements. Firefighters battled the blaze overnight in an effort to contain the blaze. In fact, the fire reached the square of Varybombi, as well as houses in Thrakomakedones .
Fire zones were created throughout the night, while an important element is the direction of the winds, as well as their strength. The goal is to reduce the fire as much as possible, until the strong winds start.
The huge front in the direction of Malakasa crossed the Athens-Lamia national road late at night on Friday, at the Markopoulou junction, marching towards Oropos through the dense pine-covered area of the area. They evacuated Markopoulo, Milesi, Buffy, and Mavrosouvala Levisi.
The fire brigade is operating, making superhuman efforts to stop its course, while their work complicates the inaccessibility of the area.
