#Europenews #Europefire #TurkeyfiresWildfires that have been raging in Turkey since last week continued today as the death toll rose to eight and water-carrying planes were scrambled from across Europe to help extinguish the flames. Neighbouring Greece was also fighting fires on multiple fronts today, with a blaze in the Peloponnese region - to the west of Athens - burning out of control, with Rhodes island in the Aegean also suffering. Multiple blazes were also burning in Italy following fires that hit Sicily and Pescara at the weekend, forcing hundreds to evacuate. Extreme fire risk warnings have also been issued for much of the south of France, with people told to avoid wooded areas in an attempt to avoid disaster. The fires are being driven by hot, dry and windy conditions that Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis warned will get worse this week as temperatures push 113F (45C) in what would be his country's worst heatwave since 1987.Original Article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9852263/Europe-fire-blazes-rage-Turkey-Greece-Italy.html Original Video: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-2472313/Video-Aerial-video-shows-efforts-Turkey-wildfires.htmlDaily Mail Facebook: http://facebook.com/dailymail Daily Mail IG: http://instagram.com/dailymail Daily Mail Snap: https://www.snapchat.com/discover/Daily-Mail/8392137033 Daily Mail Twitter: http://twitter.com/MailOnline Daily Mail Pinterest: http://pinterest.co.uk/dailymail Daily Mail Google+: https://plus.google.com/+DailyMailGet the free Daily Mail mobile app: http://dailymail.co.uk/mobile
