Firefighting helicopters continued to dump water on scorched hillsides as wildfires rage in a forest in Turkey today.

Footage shows the aircraft carrying extinguishers to put out flames while thick plumes of white smoke could be seen rising from the critical zones in Antalya’s Manavgat district on August 4 as onlookers watched from a safe distance.

Eight people have reportedly died due to the fires affecting towns on Turkey’s southern coast, while thousands more have been evacuated.

Wildfires continue to burn across Turkey affecting neighbouring countries Spain, Greece and Italy as heatwaves brought extreme temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius.
