Locals assisted firefighters in extinguishing wildfires raging on the Greek island of Evia (Euboea), north of Athens, as flames were seen approaching residential area on Wednesday.
«We thought it would be impossible for the fire to reach the houses after yesterday's huge operation. But we are very sad to see the wind made the fire strong again,» said a local woman.
Footage shows helicopters... Еще dropping water onto the fires and residents can be seen saving animals as well as trying to tackle the wildfire with a garden hose.
Athens which is 110 km (70 miles) away from Evia has been covered with smoke since Tuesday with some residents reporting ash falling from the sky.
