greece fires

please pray for the greek families affected by the fires. most of the fires are on mainland greece (we are 7 hours away by boat). the fires look to have been set intentionally and 60 people have perished so far. some villages were completely surrounded and rescuers were unable to reach them. i can't believe someone would do this. the latest area being threatened is Olympia and the site of the greek ancient olympics (first picture below). there are still many active fires that are growing and the greeks are now getting help from other nations. below is a map of the fires i found on the internet. please pray. my heart breaks to think people are being burned alive because they are trapped by these fires someone else started.
