A huge wildfire engulfed on Monday a forest area in Theken village, part of Martanesh. Over 150 acres of pine trees and bushes have been completely destroyed so far by the flames.
Some houses and local businesses are also endangered due to the quick advance of the fire encouraged by the strong winds. Numerous firefighters are still battling with the flames but the presence of only one firefighting vehicle in the area makes it nearly impossible for them to contain the fire.
A number of families have been evacuated from the endangered areas in order to prevent the loss of human lives due to the massive fires.
