In the early hours of the morning, the firefighting aircraft and helicopters started flying, trying to stop the destructive fury of the fire that extends to Dervenochoria, Kouvara, Saronida, with the firefighters trying to stop its course towards Mandra Attica.
The front of the fire near the provincial road Oinois-Magoulas is huge, while the fire brigade all night gave titanic efforts to prevent it from approaching a cement factory in the area of Mandra. The huge front of the tongues of fire extends many kilometers from right to left, while the worrying thing is that as time goes by the winds are getting stronger.
The area has been covered with a thick cloud of black smoke. The fire passed from the opposite ridge in the direction of Magoula. Everyone's fear of the fire spreading. Night has become day as all the mountains have been encircled by fire. Strong winds continue to blow in the area.
Large ground firefighting forces are also operating at the scene. In the area of Neos Kouvaras, where the first big fire started yesterday, 3 helicopters operate, in Loutraki, which records many disasters, 5 planes and 1 helicopter, and in Dervenochoria, where the fire is very big, 6 planes and 1 helicopter.
