Crop burning creates huge pall of smoke visible from Kalkan PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 14 October 2017

Crop burning

A field between Yeşilköy and Çayköy is currently on fire and sending a huge pall of smoke into the air that is clearly visible from Kalkan.

The seat of the fire is fairly small and presumably under control as no fire tenders appear to be in attendance, however the plume of smoke is enormous and visible for miles around.  We assume that this is deliberate crop burning rather than an accidental fire, but we have no way of knowing for certain.

In the nearby villages of Çayköy and Üzümlü there is a smell of smoke in the air and fine pieces of black ash can be seen drifting down from the sky.  The prevailing wind is taking the smoke away from Yeşilköy and Kalkan.  Update: The wind appears to have changed direction as the smell of smoke has descended on Kalkan and ash debris can be seen on the ground.

Below we provide a few images of the fire and the smoke.
