Fast-growing forest fire forces precautionary evacuations

A forest fire burning in Turkey’s Mediterranean town of Kumluca has charred 40 hectares of land and forced precautionary evacuations in nearby villages. A change in the direction of wind has fanned the blaze which was previously brought under control by firefighters. Seven helicopters and four amphibious aircraft have been dispatched to the area to reinforce hundreds of firefighters and forest workers battling the flames, private Demiroren News Agency reported. It said the cause of the fire was still unknown.
