Turkey’s southern coast has been caught by fire from late July to early August. After the most of the fire outbreaks have been extinguished, the western regions are still fighting the wildfires. Eight casualties have been reported as a result of fires so far.At the same time, the Russian Siberia suffers from the wildfires that are reportedly bigger than this season’s wildfires in Greece, Turkey, Italy, the United States and Canada combined.
