Just one fire in Rachtades, there have been no reports to my knowledge about any other fires on the island, North or South.
We don't know how this one started but no humans were hurt and no real damages. The response was fast.

The wildfire on the island of Corfu was partially taken under control on Thursday evening. Fire Service and volunteers keep fighting against the flames as there are revivals.

Some 110 people from the village Rahtades were earlier evacuated as a preventive measure.

The fire broke out in a difficult to access forest area in the North-West of the island early in the afternoon.

The Fire Service was mobilized with 16 firefighters, 7 fire trucks and 5 aerial means, that fly only during the daytime.

No home or business place suffered any damage but the damage in the forest is immense, writes corfupress.gr

Late on Thursday the residents of the village returned to their homes.

The main road in the area has been open again to traffic.

Locals suspect arsonists at work.
