A 45-year-old person died in a fire that broke out in the Magnisia region, state broadcaster ERT reported.

Due to a fire that broke out near the city of Volos, the industrial zone and some settlements were evacuated.

Meanwhile, fires in Corfu and Rhodes continued and some settlements were evacuated in the region as a precaution last night.

Greek and foreign firefighters have been battling the blazes for nine days.
