Forest fire

Sat here on my balcony watching an epic attempt to control a fire in the hills looks like they have got on top of it but was a bit close at times even got some ash in my vodka

It's in the hills up near Asparan but is said to be under control now. Happens a lot - I remember watching the helicopters dealing with one on the hill just as you come into Icmeler from Marmaris a few years back.

Hebben net bericht van onze dochter en haar man. Zitten eveneens in Icmeler op dit moment en bevestigen dat ze op een terrasje zitten en de asdeeltjes op hun tafel vallen. Moet een geweldige stank geven volgens hen . Zien de vliegtuigen en helicopters blussen. Toch dichter dan gedacht ? Zijn wel bezorgd en vinden weinig info.
