ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece's fire department says that one person has died after a wildfire broke out west of Athens.

A body was found in a ravine outside the town of Agioi Theodoroi, 65 kilometers (40 miles) west of Athens.

Fire officials say that the body has been burned so badly, it isn't immediately identifiable. They believe the victim is an elderly woman who had been declared missing by her family earlier Sunday.

The fire, which has been contained, burned through a forest area and severely damaged a house on the outskirts of the town.
