New Huge Fire Breaks Out East of Athens (video,photos)

A thick cloud of smoke descends on the main port of Rafina as holidaymakers wait to board ferries

As the Greek capital’s firefighting force was doing battle with a large wildfire in Kineta, west of Athens, a separate blaze broke out on Mount Penteli in the northeast on Monday afternoon.
The fire is raging out of control in the towns of Rafina, Mati and New Voutzas.


Local authorities said they were evacuating children’s summer camps, while dozens of homes and cars were reportedly destroyed.
The sky over the Greek port of Rafina, which serves ferries to some of the Cycladic islands, turned black from the smoke.
