Wildfires Encroach on Heavily Touristed Areas of Southern Turkey

Tourists were forced to evacuate as forest fires encroached on popular holiday areas near Bodrum, Turkey, local media reported on Sunday, August 1.

At least eight people have died during the recent bout of fires in the region, which have impacted the heavily touristed provinces of Antalya and Mugla.

This footage, taken in Mugla province from a road near Bodrum, shows fires burning at higher elevations.

On Sunday evening, Bekir Pakdemirli, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, said progress had been made to bring fires in Mugla under control. Credit: @yilmazsonisik via Storyful
