In Kynouria in the eastern part of the Arcadia province, water-dumping craft were trying to put out a blaze in a stretch of forestland, while in Florina in northern Greece, firefighters were able to bring under control a blaze than began on Monday evening in Aghios Germanos in the municipality of Prespes.

The firefighting service, meanwhile, was reported to have brought a large blaze that has been burning on the southeastern Aegean island of Rhodes since Saturday under control.
