A large wildfire rages out of control on the outskirts of Athens on Saturday, burning several homes and thousands of acres of forest.

Greek authorities declared a state of emergency after the fire, which broke out late Friday in the village of Grammatiko, about 40 km (25 miles) northeast of the Greek capital, spread to neighboring villages and threatened Athens' northern suburbs.

The Bulgarian government has decided to send immediate help today to help its Southern neighbour.
