Fires break out across Israel due to heatwave
Firefighters have been working to put out fires across Israel on Monday.
Many of the fires are being contained but according to the spokespersons of the Israeli Fire and Rescue Services, most of the fires are ongoing and have not been extinguished, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Most of Israel has experienced a heat wave that was set to break Monday afternoon.
The fire brigade's Information and Population Training Branch advised citizens not to light any fires in open areas and to follow safety instructions: Stay away from areas with forests or dried up fields. If you live in a house near a forest clear any weeds surrounding the house. In case of fire call 102 for the fire brigade.
