Planes join in fighting Greek fires

ZACHARO, Greece - EU firefighters and planes joined the battle yesterday against the fires raging in Greece for three days, killing 51 people and threatening areas near ancient Olympia, historic site of the first Olympic games.

Greece declared a state of emergency on Saturday as towering walls of flame cut a swathe of destruction through the southern Peloponnese peninsula and across other areas of the country. - Reuters
