Greece Fires Bearing Down On Athens

The government of Greece is broadening its probe of a devastating string of wildfires now blamed in at least 63 deaths.

A top prosecutor thinks fires that were deliberately set may come under Greece's anti-terrorism law.

Fires have been breaking out by the dozens since Aug. 24, spreading over southern Greece.

One is now bearing down on a suburb of Athens.

Forest fires are common during Greece's hot, dry summers, but nothing has approached the scale of fires over the last four days.
