HUGE wildfire spreads to hotel as helicopters tackle blazes in Turkey.

Firefighters sought on Friday (July 29) to extinguish a wildfire from land and air close to residential areas in southwestern Turkey, the local forestry authority said, reminding Turks of blazes last year that raged across the region.

The regional forestry authority of Mugla province said the fires, fanned by strong winds and temperatures close to 40 degrees Celsius, were threatening a hotel and settlement areas in the small seaside town of Icmeler near Marmaris.

The Turkish coast guard secured the bay and suspended water traffic in the area where fire-fighting planes and helicopters were collecting water to help extinguish the fire, it added.
