JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A fire broke out on Wednesday in a field in western Jerusalem, Israeli media reported.

Yedioth Ahronoth reported that fire crews accompanied by six planes tried to control the fire, while the police told residents to evacuate their houses.

Another fire broke out in Jerusalem's Tzur Hadassa area, and firefighters were working to put it out.

In the village of Lifta, also in western Jerusalem, another fire broke out and crews of firefighters rushed to the place.

The fire spread, forcing the Israeli police to shut the main road between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
