Turkey fires map: Where are the wildfires?


DEADLY wildfires rage in Turkey leaving destruction and chaos in their trail.

But where are they and why are they happening?

What's happening in Turkey?

A severe heatwave has blasted southern Europe - with temperatures rising above 40C.

Wildfires have also broken out in nearby Greece and Italy, but Turkey has been hit hard with nearly 235,000 acres burned.

More than 330 people have received medical treatment as the flames were worsened by strong winds.

Roads have also been cut off by flames as residents have had to be either airlifted to safety or picked up by boat from the beaches.

Investigators are trying to establish whether some of the fires were started deliberately, amid reports that one suspected arsonist has been detained.

One fire in the coastal town Marmaris was caused by children, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

And while Turkish authorities investigate whether fires were started as an act of “sabotage”, experts mostly point to the climate crisis, as seen by the drastic increases in temperatures along with accidents caused by people.
