Fires

Fires. Fires in the Southern Peloponnese and again in Athens. Started by men? Spread by the wind and heat.

    Or, started by women?

  2. During the Commune in 1871 fires were started throughout Paris by the pétroleuses - women arsonists who threw kerosene bombs into buildings, seen as symbols of the ancien régime, and some British suffragettes had a go at burning down the boathouse in our park in 1911 - but for some reason I think the fires, where started deliberately, in Greece are the work of men.
