Multiple videos on social media shows massive forest fire in Manavgat district of Antalya in Turkey. The fire has reached the residential areas.

Several houses have been burned, multiple neighborhoods have been evacuated as fire continues to grow in Turkey.

On Wednesday, forest fires erupted in four different locations in Turkey’s southern province of Antalya’s Manavgat district. As the flames advanced towards residential areas and a hospital, district governor Mustafa Yiit told reporters, “This is an unprecedented fire.”

The flames were fanned by strong winds, forcing authorities to evacuate a number of homes in the Evrenseki, Kalemler, and Yeniköy neighbourhoods. Yeniköy is the epicentre of the fire, the cause of which is unknown. Local firefighters are receiving assistance from equipment and fellow firefighters from neighbouring cities.
