Turkish Wildfires

Over 200 wildfires have burned more than 395,000 acres of Turkey’s forest in its Mediterranean region in July and August, the worst wildfire season in the country’s history. In the past two weeks, the fires have killed eight people and forced thousands of people, including tourists, to flee. The Mugla province alone has reported that 136,000 acres have burned—more than twice the area burned across all of Turkey in 2020—and that 36,000 people have evacuated. Strong winds, extremely high temperatures and low humidity have contributed to the spread of the fires.
