fire brigade

The Fire Brigade is evacuating the village of Drosia in Achaia for precautionary reasons following the fire that broke out in the area earlier on Wednesday.

According to sources, the front of the fire is in a ravine, but the winds that blow in the area are strong and make the fire brigades work difficult.

At the same time, the firefighting forces operating in the area have been strengthened.

In particular, 16 fire engines with a 47-member crew, two teams of firefighters on foot assisted by five firefighting aircraft, including the Beriev-200, and two water dropping helicopters are battling the blaze.
