The fire erupted in Antalya earlier this week, killing at least three people, damaging multiple houses, and prompting mass evacuations of locals and tourists as it quickly spread across the area.

Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin previously called the wildfire a national disaster. At the same time, authorities have launched an investigation into the causes of the blaze, probing possible arson.
