Greece's Peloponnesian peninsula, south of Athens, has been engulfed by flames fuelled by tinder-dry conditions and spread by strong winds. The Greek government has asked other EU countries to contribute helicopters and aircraft equipped to extinguish wildfires.
The group being offered by Finland includes forest fire experts and fire-fighters. If Greece agrees to accept the offer, the group and equipment will be ready to go at six hours' notice.
Finland is also looking into the possibility of offering its expertise in reforesting the affected areas.
