I have just received information that a fire has broken out on Mt. Athos. I do not know yet if the monastery is involved or how close it is to the monastery. As soon as I know more info I will let you all know.
Latest update: As far as we can tell, the monastery is not being threatened by the fire. There was an immediate response by Greek authorities and 20 fire fighting vehicles to contain the fire. It happened in the heavily wooded area near the monastery.
