Fires...

Unfortunately this happens every summer, but really, this particular fire seems to be the worst in Cyprus, during the last 10 years...

I was in a village very close to the fire yesterday... It's a real tragedy... The forest has gone...

Way too many fires and that is huge, Panos!

There's an ongoing fire in New Mexico, called the Dog Head Fire.  It is in the northern Manzano Mountains and was estimated at just under 18,000 acres this morning and only 9 percent contained.  Growth of Dog Head Fire stagnates; meeting site changes to Moriarty.

Last month, an entire city in Canada had to be evacuated due to a massive wild fire.  Fort McMurray fire: Entire Canadian city evacuated - CNN.com

They are huge fires, indeed... What a disaster!

The ''difference'' is that Cyprus is only 9000 square Km, with 750 000 population... The country is in real danger... 20 firefighting planes from France, Italy, England, Israel, Greece and Cyprus are trying to control the fire, but till now the result is the same...

Let's pray for all the people around the world, who face such a tragedy...
