The most affected village is Mati in Eastern Attica, where most of the bodies of the dead were found. According to the latest information, 85 people were killed and 187 were injured. A forest fire, which arose on Pendeli mountain and was whipped up by storm winds, descended in less than an hour along the mountainside to the sea, destroying everything in its path.
Now most of the fires are extinguished, the last fires are localized. On Wednesday and Thursday, heavy rains arrived to replace the hot weather.
