A government delegation arrived to Corfu early today, Wednesday, to coordinate the fire fighting struggle and examine its causes.

The Prefect of the Ionian islands claimed again that the number of fires and their timing points to arson.
Fires in the island of Zakynthos, another Ionian island, strengthen this argument.
The fires are still on although there is a partial control. Reenforcements have arrived to help, especially airplanes because the area is not easily accessible on foot.
