For the third straight day, firecrews are working around the clock to contain and extinguish a series of massive brush fires that broke out earlier this week; A state of emergency has been declared in Haifa, with all firefighting aircraft being scrambled to control the blaze that has forced the evacuation of thousands.

With firefighting forces and emergency services dealing with the third straight day of fires across Israel, the city of Haifa is being hit particularly hard Thursday. Fires broke out in two different locations in the Carmel that spread and led to a state of emergency in the city as well as the evacuation of numerous neighborhoods, schools and other facilities.

Fires initially broke out in the northeast of the city near the Paz Bridge, which led to vehicles and buildings also catching fire. At the same time, additional fires near the Haifa Bay and the city stadium were reported. Fire crews were dispatched to the scenes, but high winds and dry conditions caused the fires to spread.

Overall, 12 people in Haifa were injured lightly as a result of smoke inhalation and evacuated to Carmel Hospital.

Police have ordered the immediate evacuation of residents of the neighborhoods of Ramat Sapir, Ahuza, Ramat Almogi, Ramat Ben Gurion, Ramat Eshkol, Begin, Ramat Golda and Neot Peres.

The situation is even serious enough that the Israel Prison Service is evacuating facilities in the Carmel Region.

In the Jerusalem area, firefighters battled flames all night in the forest while trying to protect Neve Ilan, Highway 1 and vital installations of the Israel Electric Corporation.

The spreading fire halted traffic on Route 443 at Shilat Junction and caused residents in the Modi’in area to remain indoors.

Six firefighters and two helicopters were scrambled to the Maccabim area checkpoint to stop the blaze from spreading towards a shopping center in Modi’in.

Four firefighting aircraft arrived in Israel on Thursday morning from Greece and Cyprus to aid in the battle against the blazes that have been plaguing the country for the past three days.
