The Fire Ground

Our forest where found the meaning of the word 'green'; are one of the main centers of the life cycle for mankind and natural life. Unfortunately, the news of the fire that started with the summer season upset us. In 2017, I watched the Denizli Sarayönü fire extinguishing and cooling works where approximately 150 hectares of forest were burned. While trying to identify what we lost during the fire, I also tried to document the fire fighting teams.
