Residents of Hadas, Mitzpeh-Nof and Carum Streets in the Galilee city of Carmiel were evacuated from their homes, Sunday afternoon, as a result of a brush fire burning out of control.
Under the firefighting code "Macat Esh" (Barrage of Fire), all available companies in the area were sent to the scene. Three firefighting airplanes were also activated. A fire service spokesman told Arutz Sheva that the efforts of residents to fight the fire themselves was getting in the way of the evacuation effort. He stressed that no injuries were reported.
