Elderly people are seen on chairs and makeshift bed onboard a ferry at the port of the village of Pefki, during a wildfire at Pefki village on Evia.
Firefighters and volunteers use a water hose near a burning blaze trying to extinguish a fire in the village of Glatsona on Evia island, on August 9.
While Europe has battled wildfires for weeks, across the Mediterranean, North Africa is also facing the threat. At least 25 Algerian People's National Army members have been killed while fighting wildfires east of the Algerian capital Algiers since Monday, the country's president Abdelmadjid Tebboune said in a post to Twitter on Tuesday.
The country has recorded 103 fires in 17 provinces since Monday, according to the Algeria Press Service (APS) report on Tuesday.
The military personnel died after rescuing more than 100 people "from the blazing fires" in the mountains of Bejaia and Tizi -Ouzou in the east of the capital.
Anger at government response
Hundreds of protesters rallied outside the Greek Parliament in Athens on Monday over the government's handling of the wildfires.
"We are protesting against the government that has let all the country burn, because of profits before people," demonstrator Nikos Loutos told Reuters. "We are protesting because they give millions for buying warplanes and police and not for the fire brigade."
Another protester, Anna Mitilineou, said: "There is a lot of rage in the public because they have not staffed the special forest fire brigade. The forest fire brigade puts out fires in the forests, not the regular firefighters, and they dismantled them, that is why we are burning."
Prime Minister Mitsotakis said any failures in Greece's firefighting response will be identified, those responsible will be held to account and people whose property was destroyed will be compensated.
The prime minister will chair a cabinet meeting on Tuesday which will announce specific measures to tackle the effects of the wildfires.
