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.

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.
