The fire, which broke out in the forest area in the Beyciler District of Muğla’s Milas district, spread in a short time with the effect of the wind. Flames spread to Çökertme, Bozolan, Baslegen and Gökbel neighborhoods.
Gendarmerie teams ensured the evacuation of the neighborhoods. Some citizens were seen trying to save their animals.
The struggle of the teams against the flames in the region continues.
Starting from noon, the fire continues to be effective in Çökertme and Bozalan locations. The flames, which spread rapidly due to the wind that was effective in the region, approached the Ören Türkevleri location. Gendarmerie teams do not allow passage from Ören Mahallesi to the Çökertme route from the Türkevleri location, except for vehicles on duty.
The citizens in the region and the TOMA team also support the fire extinguishing efforts.
Teams are trying to intervene in the flames that spread over a wide area with the effect of the wind in the Upper Mazı and Lower Mazı neighborhoods.
Because the wind changes direction frequently, it is difficult to respond to the fire, making it difficult in heavy smoke. Water is carried to the fire brigades by the sprinklers from different provinces of Turkey and concrete mixers belonging to some construction companies in the district. Local residents also provide water support with tankers.
