    It is difficult to fight against fire. Most important is none loses his life.

    So sad, every summer it seems the same thing, and often these start due the lack of humans to clean up their mess properly. I feel for the people of Greece as i would for anyone in the world battling these type of large fires.

    I use to live in Politia where the fires are, it happened when I was there some 20 years ago, scrubby trees and dry grass. Not as populated as now. You think they would get a handle on it. Luckily most house are built of brick and cement.
