Zakynthos burning

A forest fire broke out this evening on the Greek island of Zakynthos. We were driving home when we saw an ominous red glow on the underside of the clouds, and managed to find a vantage point just outside the village of Volimes where we met some locals who explained what was going on. The fire was just over the ridge, with flames occasionally licking above the treetops. When we returned early the next day after a heavy thunderstorm, it looked like things were under control. I hope it didn’t cause any damage.
