3 young brothers dead in Greek house fire
As a result, the cost of heating oil has increased almost 40 percent, leaving many Greek families — whose incomes have already taken a big hit from years of recession, fiscal austerity and soaring unemployment — no option but to switch to cheaper forms of heating.
Bozoudis and other villagers of Mesoropi, contacted by phone, said that this incident would not have happened if the family still used heating oil and wondered how many more accidents like that would take place across the country.
