Brush fires around Pissouri

Huge fires swept along the valley close to Pissouri, scrub land and carob trees burnt quickly as winds fanned the flames, at one point in the early evening it looked as if the whole valley was alight as the fires stretched for miles.
Fire fighting helicopters spent over 24 hours dumping sea water on the surrounding area as the fire crept towards the village of Avdimou.

Bush Fires

Sitting on our balcony we noticed smoke from a fire that looked as if it was very big, apparently the fire started in the North of the Island in Kayalar.

Strong winds fanned the flames and its reported that a fire fighting plane was brought in from the Turkish mainland.
