In the summer of 1988, a great fire broke out in the southern part of the Prespa National Forest, in Greece. This is the largest forest fire in the history of the region, which burned approximately 25,000 hectares of forest, in the Triklarios and Varnouda mountains. It took 13 days to extinguish it.
The filmmaker captures shots in which we follow the progress of the fire, between the slopes of the mountains. At the same time, there are tourists who swim in the Great Prespa lake.
About 6-7 Canadair water-carrying aircrafts, which were continuously supplied with water from the Great Prespa lake, attempted to pass through dense smoke in the area.
Residents of the area, among them the ranger of the Forest, have arrived in the area and are monitoring the water drops from the firefighting aircraft.
