Government spokesman Panos Livadas told the BBC the fact that no lives had been lost was proof of the efficiency of the operation.
Meanwhile the leader of the Communists (KKE), Aleka Papariga, has alleged there was a well-organised conspiracy to clear the area for property development. Previous fires in Greece have been blamed on arsonists intent on clearing land.
The fires began late on Friday in Grammatiko, near Marathon. They are the worst since those in 2007 which killed about 70 people.
In July, dozens of fires burnt through thousands of hectares of land in other parts of Greece, Spain, France and Italy.
According to the conservation group Greenpeace, heat waves and drier conditions are leading to larger and more uncontrollable forest fires across the whole Mediterranean region.
