A fire in Degirmenlik destroyed 30 olive trees this afternoon. The trees were reduced to ashes by a fire which was thought to have been started by someone throwing a lighted cigarette end away.

Locals first fought off the fire and then the Forestry Department arrived to put out the blaze which covered 3 acres of land.
