Fire in Beit Shemesh Area


A fire was reported burning, out of control, Thursday afternoon, near the industrial area in Beit Shemesh, west of Jerusalem. Because of strong winds, the fire spread quickly through the treetops.

Firefighting services reported six crews from Beit Shemesh and Jerusalem were battling the blaze, assisted by firefighting airplanes. The Jerusalem firefighters were sent to Beit Shemesh after a fire in the Judean Hills community of Even-Sapir was brought under control.
