Fire raging in an area of forest near Lavrio port in AtticaFour settlements are being evacuated

The Fire Brigade requested the precautionary evacuation of four settlements in the municipality of Lavreotiki, where earlier a large fire broke out that is raging still out of control, protothema.gr reports.

In particular, the settlements of Agrileza, Agios Gerasimos, Kamariza, and Sounio have been evacuated.

The fire broke out in the area of Punta Zeza. The Fire Brigade is constantly reinforced, while the Undersecretary of Civil Protection is also on the scene.

Shortly before two in the afternoon, it was decided to evacuate a children’s camp situated in the area of Punta Zeza.

In particular, with the care of the camp managers, the children were escorted to the seaside, where they remain.

There is no danger for the camp whatsoever for the time being.
