The Deputy Minister of Civil Protection and Crisis Management, Nikos Hardalias, spoke about an extremely difficult night, after the meeting he had with the Prime Minister, at the Mobile Coordination Center for Operations "Olympus", in Varybobi.

Mr. Hardalias stated that of the four fronts that existed, the dawn found them with an active and the rest in recession, result of the work done by the hikers on all 4 fronts.

At sunrise, the aerial firefighting equipment was activated. The effort of the ground forces is also gigantic where they operate all night so that there are no resurgences in the area while precautionarily around three in the morning the Anoixeos street in Kryoneri was evacuated.

"I do not know where the fire started. Her speed was tremendous. Her hearths were miles away. It is tragic what happened. We are on alert ", stressed Spyridon Brettos, Mayor of Acharnes, speaking in Athens at 9.84.

«Today we will proceed to record the losses. In collaboration with the Attica Region, the area will be declared a state of emergency", He stated and pointed out that the call center of the Municipality of Acharnes (210 2415300-301) is open 24 hours a day.

The whole of Attica woke up in a suffocating atmosphere.

The fire destroyed forest areas, houses and crops, while in many areas of Eastern Attica it threatened human lives. and animals.

The heads of the authorities express their optimism that if the weather conditions do not change, the air vehicles that took off with the first light of day will be able to extinguish all the fires in the next few hours.

There are 520 firefighters operating in the area, with 17 groups of pedestrians and 150 vehicles.

As it became known by the Fire Department, the fire has been caused a lot of damage to houses and other houses, mainly in Adames and Varybobi, which will be assessed when the fire is over.

It is noted that the traffic that had been stopped on the Athens-Lamia national road was restored in both traffic streams, but all roads leading to the area of ​​fire remain closed by the Traffic Police, for safety reasons, but also so that the fire trucks can move freely.

Also, in the whole area, from which all the residents were removed in order not to endanger their lives, police forces are constantly patrolling, which have been put on alert by the order of the leader of ELAS.

A total of 300 police officers are involved in the implementation of the measures by the police, while the entire force of GADA is on constant alert. 520 firefighters are trying to put out the fire with 17 groups of infantry units, 150 vehicles, the METPE, as well as infantry units of the army and many volunteer firefighters, with the assistance of water tankers and local government equipment.

The hoteliers of Attica offer hospitality to the fire victims, at the expense of the state. Those citizens who need temporary housing can call the call center of EODY 1135.

IPTO circuits in operation

The picture in the electricity network is improved today as in the early morning the circuits of the Transmission System that had gone out due to the fire were put back into operation. This is the double circuit of high voltage 400 kV between the substation of Agios Stefanos and the substation of Acharnes and the high voltage circuit of 150 kV Agios Stefanos-Chalkidona-Olympic Village.

However, the system is still called to face difficult conditions due to high temperatures, high demand and additional problems that may arise from fires. Demand, according to forecasts, is expected to move today to record levels, close to 11.000 megawatts, while wholesale electricity prices are also at high levels. Large electricity consumers (industries) are also ready for cuts in electricity demand.

The electricity supply of Attica was secured yesterday by bypassing the points that were out of order due to the fire, something that however drastically reduces the safety of the system.
