New outbreaks of forest fires broke out in Turkey in two regions of Dersim. The fire that broke out in Bingol’s Yayladere district has not been extinguished yet, Ermenihaber writes.
After 13 days of fighting the fire with the help of helicopters in the Hozat region of Dersim, the fire was partially controlled. However, at the same time, new outbreaks broke out in Ovacik. Due to the wind in the evening, the firefighting work was stopped. Under the influence of the wind, the fires spread quickly to the settlements, damaging the electric wires. It is not possible to localize the fire in all places yet.
