ANKARA (AA) – A plane deployed to help put out wildfires on the Greek island of Euboea crashed in the coastal town of Karystos on Tuesday, local media reported.

The Canadair plane was sent to put out the blaze in the village of Platanistos, daily Kathimerini said.

Rescuers were sent to the area, the report added.

Euboea is Greece’s second-largest island, less than half the area of Crete, but far closer to the mainland, lying roughly east and northeast of Athens, diagonal to the Attica peninsula.

Dozens of devastating wildfires have been ravaging Greece for days, including on the island of Rhodes, a tourist hotspot.

Several countries, including Türkiye, have reached out to help Greece in extinguishing the blazes, which have burned houses and forests.
