Large areas in Haifa were consumed by fires that turned the peaceful city into a war zone
November 24 is a date that Haifa will not forget anytime soon.
It was the fourth day of wildfires that spread all over the country, at the end of a long hot summer and a period of extremely dry conditions. The vegetation stood arid, brown, and brittle, the winds were wild, and the combination was disastrous. All it took to start an uncontrollable fire was a spark, and what in normal conditions could have been extinguished by a bucket of water, now quickly developed into a raging sea of flames.
