Hundreds of British tourists displaced by forest fires in Greece were returned to hotels yesterday afternoon as the blaze was brought under control.
Officials, tour operators and officials said people were able to continue holidays after the emergency forced some to flee hotels.
A German tourist was killed as flames destroyed 9,000 acres of forest on the Halkidiki peninsula in northern Greece.
Several dozen people received hospital treatment for breathing difficulties and burns.
Fire officials said the pattern of the fire's progress indicated arson.
Tourists spent the night on the beach, on sunbeds, with others in shelters.
A Foreign Office spokesman said although the fire was contained, Greek emergency workers fear strong winds could cause further outbreaks.
Embassy staff and members of a rapid deployment team, including two British Red Cross volunteers, spent the day checking on British nationals.
David Wiles, of the Federation of Tour Operators, said people were advised to travel as normal.
The areas closest to the fires which damaged more than 50 homes were Pefkhori, Hanioti and Polichrono.
Up to ten water planes and helicopters joined the fire fighting effort, which at one stage involved more than 250 firefighters and soldiers.
The blaze was fanned by gusts of wind and temperatures of up to 40C (104F).
The German tourist drowned while trying to escape by boat.
