The Polish firefighters travelled over 1200 miles, through five countries, to help tackle some of the worst blazes in Greece.

According to Brigadier Michał Langner, the unit's commander, the Polish firefighters will operate alongside their Greek counterparts and, possibly, other international units in a bid to control the fires.
