There is still no clear evidence as to what has caused the fire, though there are quite a few speculations that this was arsenal. The Carmel mountains, nicknamed The Ever Green mountains, are as black as the night. All burnt to ashes. But the biggest tragedy isn't the loss of so many acres of greenery (so far, about 4 million trees), or the loss of homes and property. This fire has taken lives with it. About 40 people lost their lives in a burning bus that got caught in the fire.
As I am writing this post the fire is still raging not too far from me. Only 45 minutes drive from here. There are many out there who are doing all they can to overcome the fire and put it out. Apart from the Israeli forces we are receiving great help from countries around us, including Egypt, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Croatia, Russia, Greece, Cypress, Jordan, England, France, Italy, The US, and from our neighbors, the Palestinians.
May god be with us!
** I don't know what to think of it, that only a day has passed and there is already a page on Wikipedia regarding the Carmel fire. And it's written like an historical article...
