A devastating wildire on the Dodecanese island of Rhodes, in the southeastern Aegean, which was raging on Sunday for the sixth day, was reported as having been contained on Sunday night.

The massive firefighting force was being assisted by hundreds of volunteers from all over the island.

Authorities said that careful monitoring was necessary throughout the entire region to look out for rekindling, due to strong winds in the area.

The blaze, which broke out last Tuesday, has burned an estimated 40,000 stremma fo forest and brush, and fears have been voiced of immense damage to the island's ecosystem.
