Police forces are giving instructions to citizens on how to escape from the area. The government is on the alert, and the church bells are ringing all the time so that even the last residents understand that they have to leave.
"I call on all residents to leave, we are interested in human life, not property. 80 percent of Nea Aghialos has been evacuated," Volos mayor Achilleas Beos said earlier. The fire has been burning uncontrollably in Magnesia for the second day.
On Thursday, shortly before 6 p.m., there were explosions in the ammunition warehouses of the 111th fighter regiment. The warehouse is located a few kilometers from the airport and there are above ground and underground tanks, as well as ammunition.
The explosions from the warehouse were heard as far as Volos and Skopelos.
The shock wave broke the windows of houses and storefronts in the area.
