More than 1,000 people have been evacuated as firefighters battled a wooded area furnace in southern Turkey for a 2d day on Thursday.
The fireplace broke out in the Gulnar district of the Mediterranean coastal province of Mersin on Wednesday and spread to components of the wind-swept Silifke district.
At least 29 water-dropping helicopters, 11 planes and about 850 personnel have been concerned in the firefighting effort, Turkey’s disaster and emergency management agency, AFAD, said.
AFAD stated thousands of houses and at least two accommodations were evacuated as a precaution. Seven human beings injured in the furnace are undergoing therapy at the hospital.
The highway linking Mersin to nearby Antalya province was also closed as a precaution but reopened on Thursday, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported.
Last summer, at least eight people and numerous animals were killed by wildfires fueled by high winds and extreme temperatures in the forests of Turkey’s Mediterranean and Aegean regions.
The government has faced criticism for its inadequate response and preparedness to fight large-scale forest fires, including the lack of modern firefighting aircraft.
