It has been reported that today a small forest fire has broken out in the Minies region of Kefalonia which is in the hills near the capital city of Argastoli.
The fire apparently broke out at around 14.20 and was attended by fire crews with around 10 firefighters and three special fire vehicles as they attemted to quell the flames. it is not believed that any tourists are at threat and the fire is now under control.
Most years small fires break out in Greece as the weather is spectacular and the wonderful sunshine heat means that the area is prone to fire risks however it is very rare that the fires spread and holidaymakers are threatened and we do not suspect that this fire is any different as the fire crews seem to have it under control.
Kefalonia holidays are popular all year round however the summer months are when you will find the most vistors flocking to to island. For more information on holidays on the island of Kefalonia and the other Ionian islands vist the Kefalonia.co.uk website.
