Hi Michael

That's terrible, hope everyone is safe and they get it under control quickly. The fires in Greece were very bad recently.

I hope they manage to get it under control quickly and no one gets hurt. Is the tennis place the one down the back road from halikarnas nightclub, heading towards the airport? thats the only tennis place i can think of.

In order to identify the location maybe those in the know could use the co-ordinates, in red (eg 2A or 4C) to pinpoint the fire. I am sure this would bw of help for those not staying there at the moment, but are concerned about their property.

The location was more J4-K4 from the back of the newest houses straight up the scrubby hills to the top of the first ridges- where it seems it ran into the fire / electricty access tracks and firecrews. And the area burnt in 2007.
A couple of people on the harbourside say that they saw two patches of fires early on...that joined up. The helicopter had to knock off at 8 as it was getting dark. Very hard to get onto that rocky slope and fight but the crews did well.

Well, with the huge diversity of co-ordinates given, I can take it we don't have any Artillery Spotters on the Forum!

Please the fire's now under control tho' and hope no-one was injured!
