Efforts are underway to put out the remaining 13 blazes in Adana, Antalya, Aydin, Denizli, Isparta and Mugla provinces, Turkey's Agriculture and Forestry Minister Bekir Pakdemirli says.
Turkish firefighters, locals and volunteers work at full pace to bring the blazes under control in four southern provinces, with at least eight people killed since the wildfires started on July 28.
Agriculture and Forestry Minister Bekir Pakdemirli says a total of 125 fires have erupted since July 28 and 117 of them have been contained.
At least four dead and scores injured as firefighters, planes and helicopters try to douse multiple blazes amid suspicions of arson.
