That’s why authorities are calling for caution, warning that the fire hazard in extremely high in all forest areas of the Mediterranean island.

Authorities also warn that barbecues should only take place at designated areas by the Forestry Department.

At the same time, the Fire Brigade is on alert with fire-combating engines stationed at strategic positions as a precautionary measure.
