Wind lull aids Greek firefighters

Date : 24th August 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



A lull in strong winds has given a boost to Greek firefighters battling dozens of wildfires across the country. Fires are still threatening areas north of Athens and several Greek islands, but firefighters say the area under their control is growing. Thousands of residents of the capital's northern suburbs were forced to leave their homes as dozens of houses and large areas of forest were burnt. Italian and French planes have been helping douse the flames.
