Wildfires raging across southern Turkey force residents to flee

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Wildfires raging across southern Turkey force residents to flee” – below is their description.

Strong winds have fanned multiple wildfires in southern Turkey, killing at least three people and sending many others to the hospital as homes burned down in the blazes. A wildfire that broke out on 28 July near the Mediterranean coastal resort town of Manavgat, in Antalya province, had largely been contained but another fire that started early Thursday and swept through the district of Akseki kept firefighters engaged.

Wildfires are common in Turkey’s Mediterranean and Aegean regions during the arid summer months, although some previous forest fires have been blamed on arson
