Since Tuesday police reported over 200 fires in the region. More than 80,000 people were forced to leave their homes and rush from Haifa while authorities struggle to bring the fire under control. It has been spreading especially quickly due to dry weather and strong winds. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed 'arsonist terrorism' for the blaze.
