Wildfire in Greece

When the Japanese are suffering from severe heat stroke, a deadly wildfire robbed dozens of people's life in Greece.

According to the media, it occurred near Athens on July 23th, 2018. At least 74 people were killed by fire so far, and it will be increased because rescue activity has not been completed.

In this region, wildfire often emerges since the atmosphere is dry and the wind blows strongly. But the authority seems to suspect the possibility of deliberate firesetting of a criminal who intended to conduct a theft.

Alexis Tsipras, the Greek prime minister, declared the national mourning as well as emergency, calling for help to international aids.

This year, several disasters due to abnormal climate attack the earth. I am afraid there will be more victims.
