Three Serbian police helicopter crews are helping Greek firefighters battle forest fires in the Peloponnese, their commander told the Serbian state TV (RTS) on Thursday.

Chopper unit commander Nenad Nedic said that the three helicopter crews were deployed to an area 23 miles southwest of Athens along with a Greek and Spanish crew. He added that the Serbian pilots and crews would stay in Greece for as long as they are needed.

The Serbian helicopters helped battle the forest fires on the island of Evia northeast of Athens over the past few days.
