Charred bodies of 18 people found in Greece amid European wildfires

Greece struggles to contain Europe’s largest record wildfire

Wildfires raging across northeast Greece for a 10th straight day — even as hundreds of firefighters battling to contain them — are the largest ever recorded within the European Union, according to a European Commission.

Ongoing fires have scorched 310 square miles, in the largest blaze recorded since the European Union began keeping track in 2000, Balazs Ujvari, a spokesman for the bloc’s executive branch, said in a statement.
