More than 130 firefighters with approximately 50 vehicles, as well as 40 people made available by the GEETHA, together with water tankers and machinery from the local government and the army, fight the flames all night long in the wider area of ​​Kallithea Loutraki, in order to limit the fire front and protect residential areas from fire.

As reported by the Athens-Macedonian News Agency, the deputy governor of Corinth, Haris Vytiniotis, “the fire front continues to burn with a large area, but it is encouraging that the intensity of the winds has decreased”.

At the same time, he added, that “the fire brigades are trying to prevent the fire from passing over the new Athens-Corinth highway and the railway tracks, because otherwise the fire cannot be ruled out to go towards the coastal area of ​​Kalamaki”.

In fact, as the deputy regional governor emphasized at this point, “portal forces are on alert, so that, if necessary, they can evacuate the residents in time and safely”.

He also stated that “both the fire department and the police are on constant alert for the safe removal of residents from areas that may be at risk of fire.”

Finally, from early tomorrow morning, i.e. with the first light of day, firefighting planes and helicopters are expected to operate over the fire front.
