If Only

 

The fire that started in the village of Akpinar grew steadily. The Fire in excess of the mountains above the village, progressed rapidly towards the Körfez and Derince district. Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality firefighters, forest management teams, peasants and soldiers intervened to fire that hard to controlled caused by fast blowing wind. 1 helicopter and 4 planes carried water from the Körfez to extinguish the fire.

In 2009, I photographed the big forest fire that intervened both air and land and we wish it had never happened, in the Çenedağ area of Kocaeli.
