A fire outbreak has destroyed 20 tonnes of clothes and blankets donated in Greece for war-hit Ukrainian refugees, an aid group said.

The fire broke out in a storage area outside the Peace and Friendship indoor stadium near the port of Piraeus, the fire department said.

A fire spokesperson said the blaze had been extinguished and the causes were under investigation. Nobody was hurt.

A haul of medicine and food was unharmed, aid coordinator Irina Bortnyk told newsmen.

Greece is hosting over 30,000 refugees from Ukraine, including nearly 8,000 minors.
