They were informed that the gorge would be late to open - Forestry fire exercise ongoing

Those who decided to visit the Samaria Gorge this morning, arriving on the first bus to Omalos, were faced with an unpleasant surprise.

Upon arriving at Xyloskalo, they were informed by the authorities that the gorge would be accessible to the public only from 09.30 in the morning as the Forest Service was exercising for fire safety, following the incident that occurred on Thursday and the fire that broke out.

It is recalled that on Thursday morning around 8am, for an unknown reason, a pine tree was wrapped in flames.

Forest officials managed to put the fire under control before it spread.
