Watch: Deadly wildfire ravages southern Turkey

Wildfires are common in Turkey’s Mediterranean and Aegean regions during the dry summer months, although some previous forest fires have been blamed on arson.

Three people were reported dead and more than 100 injured in southern Turkey on Thursday as strong winds fanned wildfire in the forest area near Manavgat, the Mediterranean coastal town in the south of the country.

The state-run Anadolu Agency said some people were being evacuated from the area as a precautionary measure.

The Agriculture and Forestry Minister said a firefighting plane and five helicopters were involved in efforts to bring the blaze under control.
