Reuters footage showed smoke rising from the hills as the flames spread through forests in the sparsely populated area, with helicopters and planes pounding the flames throughout the day.
Police assisted firefighters with water cannon vehicles as they sought to extinguish the fire that started around 8pm local time on Tuesday and affected more than 8,400 acres (3,400) acres of land.
More than 1,100 vehicles, as well as 61 helicopters and 13 aircraft were on duty Friday to deploy in the fire-fighting effort.
Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said a person had been arrested and he had admitted it setting fire to the forest out of frustration due to family issues. The state-run Anadolu news agency reports he was found in the woods with two cans of petrol.
The fire was started by strong winds in the area and Minister of Forests and Agriculture Vahit Kirisci told reporters on Friday that there will be more “high temperatures and winds from this afternoon”.
“We are fighting against the weather before the expected wind,” a spokesman for the Mugla province forest directorate told reporters on Friday.
Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said late Thursday that 29 people had been affected by the fires, while two people were still receiving treatment in hospital. About 274 people were evacuated as a precaution, officials said.
The government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was criticized for being unprepared to fight the fires of 2021, especially due to the lack of aircraft and helicopters.
Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the leader of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP), said on Wednesday that the government was “incompetent” and had not increased readiness after last year’s fires.
