Villages Evacuated as Wildfire Sparks 'Environmental Disaster' on Greek Island

A large wildfire prompted evacuations from four villages and a monastery on the Greek island of Evia on August 13, local media reported.

In what was described as a “huge environmental disaster” for the island, firefighters battled the 12 kilometer blaze as the region’s roughly 500 residents were evacuated, ekathimerini.com reported.

Greece’s civil protection authority declared a state of emergency for the area affected by the fire.

This footage was posted by the Adventure Evia Facebook page, who said the footage was filmed in the Kontodespoti area of the island.
