Turkey detains suspects over forest fire
ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish authorities arrested some suspected arsonists during two days of forest fires in southeastern Hatay province, which spread to buildings and sent residents on the run.
The fires started in several parts of Belen district on Friday and the forest was still burning in windy conditions on Saturday as helicopters and rescuers tried to put out the flames.
"The investigation into the possibility of sabotage continues and there are suspects arrested in connection with the fire," said the local governor's office, without specifying how many people were rounded up.
On Friday, the governor's office announced that the fire was caused by an explosion in a power transmission device and that some residential areas have been evacuated.
