Wildfire rages in the Galilee

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A large fire raged near the Palestinian village of Nahaf in the Galilee region of northern Israel on Thursday afternoon, Israeli media said.

Israeli news site Ynet said that the police had evacuated villagers even though there was not any "direct danger" to them, adding that they will let them return as soon as they control the fire.

On Wednesday, two major fires broke out west of Jerusalem, prompting evacuations. Both fires, however, were eventually brought under control.
