Thousands of people left their homes near Athens when the wildfire spread to residential areas.
Euronews reports this.
The fire made a large cloud of smoke, so residents of the Tatoi district, 20 km north of Athens, went towards the Greek capital.
Forest fires were also observed in other parts of Greece, which led to the evacuation of the population in the coastal zone of the southern Peloponnese region, as well as on the islands of Evia and Kos.
Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said the country is in the midst of the worst heat wave over 30 years.
On Tuesday in the north of Greece the highest temperature in the country was recorded. It reached 47.1 degrees Celsius.
