Satellite images show Turkey’s wildfires burning from above. The country is battling deadly wildfires along its coastline for the sixth day in a row.
The fires are responsible for at least eight deaths, according to the Associated Press. Last week it was reported that nearly 60 wildfires broke out in the country within the week, burning entire villages and forcing thousands to evacuate.
Some of the most worrisome fires are burning in Turkey’s vacation destination towns of Antalya and Mugla and in the surrounding countryside.
Turkey has broadened an appeal for international assistance in fighting the fires. The European Union has promised to supply water-dropping planes.
