Fires in Korça and Bulqize - Pine forests are being burned!
 
 For three days a large fire has been burning pine forests in the village of Kokërdhak of the administrative unit of Fushe-Bulqize in Bulqize municipality.

The fire, aided by high temperatures and strong winds, has spread rapidly across the two mountain slopes, burning several hectares of forest.

The hard terrain prevents the entrance of firefighters' vehicles. The fire is thought to be deliberate by some persons and favored by dry weather.

Meanwhile, the fire that fell in the Nikolica forest masses has increased in size as the wind has favored intense reactivation of fires.

Numerous firefighting and army forces have found it difficult to control the fire, which has become even more intense since midday.

The Greek authorities have not responded positively to local authorities' requests for assistance.
