Fire crews continue to tackle wildfires in Turkey as death toll reaches 4.

Firefighters battled one of the worst wildfires on Turkey's southern coast on Friday (July 30) for a third day after the evacuation of dozens of villages and some hotels.

More than 60 wildfires have broken out across 17 provinces on Turkey's Aegean and Mediterranean coasts this week, officials have said. The forestry minister said fires raged on in six provinces. Officials have promised to bring to account anyone found responsible for starting them.

Forestry Minister Bekir Pakdemirli said fires were still blazing in the Mediterranean resort region of Antalya and the Aegean resort province of Mugla.

Reuters filmed firefighters on the ground and in helicopters were fighting a blaze that killed three people in Manavgat, 75 km (45 miles) east of Antalya.
