Twenty-six firemen manning six vehicles and assisted by two Pezetel water-dropping aircraft were deployed at the Inonian island.

The fire broke out shortly before 4:30 p.m. in multiple areas and spread quickly due to the strong wind, local website reported.

The fire service said the flames are not close to residential areas.
