corfu fire july 2023

The approximately 2,000 tourists, who were evacuated from Kalami, Nisaki and Barbati last night and transferred to the Municipal Theatre of Corfu for precautionary reasons, are gradually returning to their hotels by private buses.

The picture on the fronts of the fire is better after the superhuman efforts of everyone during the night to prevent the fire from passing through the settlements. The contribution of aerial means is also decisive.

According to the Fire Department, there is a small resurgence in the area of ​​Palaia Perithia, where the fire had originally started, while on all other fronts, firefighters, police, volunteers, and residents are using whatever means they have to keep the flames away from the houses.

The British media is particularly interested in the development of the fire, as there are many English properties in this area.
