Last year I joined fellow villagers and firemen on the hill behind our house. Armed only with a branch from a tree I spent 4 long, hot hours trying to help control a wild fire.
This year we got to 20th of August without a fire. Perhaps the arsonist has gone away?
Tonight at 22:15 the all too familiar smell of burning shook us out of our complacency.
The all too familiar sight and sound of fire trucks rushing to the scene.
So the pattern has started again. 2 fires, always 2 fires.
Please let this person be caught before somebody is hurt (or worse).
Please share with your friends.
Sorry to hear this. Hope there is not too much damage & indeed that whoever is doing this is caught. Have been following the fires on Chios for the past week – the devastation there is horrific! Fortunately no lives lost, but livelihoods in ruins. Stay safe on Lesvos!
Luckily both were small fires and were quickly dealt with. The fires on Chios are a chilling example of how things can rapidly get very bad. Keep your fingers crossed and hope for early rain to dampen the tinderbox down.
