Tired but happy!
Forest fires...that time of year again.
I was kept awake on and off last night with the noise of the emergency helicopters tooing and froing between the ocean and the mountains at the back of my house (maybe the Seki area I think, near Side). Anyone living there have any further info?
Having had no rain here yet this summer, our beautiful green mountains are once more at huge risk of fire. I'm sure the majority of you guys have seen the absolute devastation the wild fires over here can cause and I just wanted to post a little reminder to hopefully stop anyone chucking fag ends out of the car window and of course to say, think again if your planning a bbq out in the open.
These fires are all too easy to start and way to difficult to extinguish.

Governor of Mugla province says over 50 vehicles, consisting of water sprinklers and water tenders, are already in the region and airborne firefighting vehicles will intervene as daylight comes out.​


Firefighters and other personnel have been battling to contain a fire that erupted in a forest in southwestern Türkiye.

The cause of Wednesday's fire in the Ula district of Mugla province is still unknown.

A total of 31 water sprinklers, 19 water tenders, 23 ground crews, five bulldozers and nearly 100 forest workers as well as a fire crew are battling the flames.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Mugla Governor Orhan Tavli said that efforts are continuing to control the blaze, which spread with the wind.

"At the first light of the day, air vehicles also will start to intervene. There is no evacuation in the region at the moment. Hopefully, the teams would bring the fire under control when the weather gets brighter."

Saw some video of it this morning. Shocking to say the least.

They are not responding fast enough they burn for hours. Must be a new complex in the making.
