Date Added: 23 June 2022

The Minister of Agriculture and Natural Resources Dursun Oğuz stressed that the fire extinguishing efforts will continue throughout the day with six fire fighting aircraft and three helicopters.

Announcing that the fire in the southern region has been put out, Oğuz said they aim to put out the fire which continues in the west and northeast before it gets dark today.

The Minister of Agriculture and Natural Resources Dursun Oğuz shared the latest situation with BRT following a reconnaissance flight over the fire area with President Ersin Tatar.

He said fire extinguishing efforts will continue throughout the day with six fire fighting aircraft and three helicopters.

Noting that the fire was human related, he said “it is not right to say the fire is over or under control for now. The western part is crucial. If we can control the fire there early we will be able to put out the fire.”
