Sadly, fires breaking out on Hydra are a real and present danger. As the photo galleries prove, what starts as often a thoughtless act of throwing away a cigarette butt without making sure it is out, can cause a conflagration that encompasses much of the island and really does put lives at risk. There are enough fire hazzards for Hydra to contend with and visitors and islanders alike are asked to please, please be fire aware when they are out and about on the hills and in the countryside. - Kelsey 26th May 2013
