Greek authorities told Athens residents to stay indoors as nearby wildfires rage uncontrolled and covered the sky in a thick cloud of smoke.
More than 500 firefighters battled the blaze in a densely vegetated area on the city outskirts, assisted by nine helicopters, five aircraft, police and the army.
“The fire is still raging, its perimeter is very wide and the heat load is very strong,” a fire brigade official said.
