A massive fire has erupted near a NATO base within the Buca district, Izmir, western Turkey. Authorities are investigating a possible act of sabotage, local media reports.
The inferno started on Sunday evening on the border of the Sahintepe and Mevkiinde districts. The fire engulfed the grassy wooded area and is spreading closer to NATO’s military base because of strong winds.
In a surprising twist, local authorities are investigating the fire as a possible act of anti-American sabotage.
The fire erupted shortly after Erdogan's leading Islamist paper headline officially targeted a US commander as coup leader adding his name & picture, in what local commentators dubbed as an "all out war" by Erdogan on the US.
