After being plagued by two major fires just last week, fire services in on Mount Parnitha, in Pelion have been on high alert, even as new blazes had to be put out. The new fires broke out during the afternoon on Thursday, and soon spread out of control as the winds aided it. The fires reached an 8 on the Beaufort scale. The cause for the fires has still not been found, with it either being kindled by the previous fires in these areas or by arsonists.
Firefighters here were kept busy as they were summoned to put out two more blazes in Prodromos in Viotia and Kokla in Messinia. Even yesterday Thessaloniki
