Three different places near Athens were destroyed by massive forest fires.
• 180+ people are severely injured and burnt.
• 50 people and counting were found dead on the streets, in their cars or houses, including families that were found hugging each other.
• 100+ are missing.
This is a national tragedy. So many were lost because of ARROGANT PEOPLE.

This has been named by CNN Greece as the one of the most devastating wildfires in Greece since 2000 and the worst that the country has seen since 2007 also by CNN.
