five people hospitalised in Greece wildfire


About a dozen homes burned and five people were hospitalised with breathing problems as firefighters fought a forest fire near Patras, Greece’s third-largest city, authorities said.



Some 145 firefighters, 50 trucks, eight firefighting planes and helicopters have been mobilised to extinguish the fire in the Zeria region in the Peloponnese, about 210km (124 miles) west of Athens, the firefighting service said on Saturday.

The authorities evacuated people from four villages in the region as well as from the tourist resort of Loggos on the coast.

About a dozen homes burned and five people experiencing breathing problems were transported to hospitals in the region, the civil protection authority said.

Firefighters told The Associated Press news agency that the fire was large and advancing on multiple fronts, although winds had abated somewhat.
