Fire fighters struggle to contain a wildfire in the area that surrounds the site of ancient Kamiros, in the south-western part of the island of Rhodes. Unfortunately only ground forces are able to battle against the fire blaze as firefighting aircrafts have been limited in their efforts by strong winds in the area. The Municipality of Kamiros has been declared under a state of emergency ordered by the civil protection general secretariat.
