Penteli fire was not caused by lightning or short circuit, says Civil Protection Minister Stylianides

Investigations have ruled out lightning or a short circuit as the causes of Tuesday’s Penteli fire, therefore all other possibilities are open, said Civil Protection & Climate Change Minister Christos Stylianides on Wednesday.

The process of registering all the damages in the areas affected by the Penteli fire has begun, he added.

The minister underlined that the efficient coordination of all firefighting forces was not accidental this year. “Coordination, cooperation and timely intervention were -from the first moment- at the heart of both the ministry’s and the government’s new strategy in the management of natural disasters,” he pointed out.
