Funeral for 5 in family killed in fire

World in Brief / GREECE

September 03, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Sobbing Greek villagers buried a woman and her four children who died in one of the many forest fires across the nation, as officials said the last major blaze was under control after flaring up over the weekend.

In Artemida, about 200 residents attended the funeral of the woman who was found clutching the bodies of her children, the most shocking image from the fires.

"I have run out of tears," said one woman as a string of hearses carried white coffins to a church.

Officials also said two other big fires were extinguished, leaving only minor fires smoldering.
