  • High early summer temperatures and stronger winds reached the eastern states of Germany on Sunday, fanning a wildfire in an area southwest of the capital, Berlin.
  • Residents of about 20 villages were ordered to evacuate as a forest fire, that has been burning since Friday, approached their homes.
  • Authorities ordered the evacuation of the village of Kremastos as a precaution as the blaze got as close as 800 meters (roughly 2,600 feet) from some homes.
