The fire in Drosopigi, located between Kryoneri and Afidnes, is now out of control while the flames have entered the first houses in the area.
At this time the front is moving towards Kryoneri. This development resulted in the municipality of Dionysos asking the residents of Kryoneri to leave their homes in an orderly fashion.
At the same time, it appeals not to obstruct the access of firefighting vehicles with other vehicles. In fact, a new message was sent from 112 to the residents of the area: “If you are in Drosopigi, evacuate now to Athens from the Athens-Lamias highway”.
Firefighters are giving a titanic battle to contain the fire front and bring it under control.
More specifically, 340 firefighters are operating from the ground with 100 vehicles and 15 infantry units, while 9 helicopters are operating from the air.
In the meantime, a fire broke out next to the National Highway and specifically at the Varybombi junction.
