In Menidi the fire was fueled by the strong winds and has reached the local cemetery. The Fire Brigade has deployed 70 firefighters and is supported by local government. In the other fire that broke out in Attica, in Aspropyrgos, the Fire Brigade has committed about 100 firefighters, along with the two helicopters and four waterbombers to tackle the fire, which threatened isolated houses in the area.
