A brush fire was prevented from becoming a wildfire in the Galilee region.

Firefighters have managed to contain a large brush fire after the blaze ignited between the Galilee communities of Abu Senan and the village of Khalil.

A ground crew of eight firefighters was backed up by four firefighting aircraft that worked to prevent the flames from spreading to homes in the complex topography of the area.

Another concern was the issue of the northern winds, which were blowing the flames towards an ancient olive grove.

There have been numerous wildfires throughout Israel this summer due to the extremely dry, hot conditions and also to a number of terrorist arsons. It is not yet clear how this fire started.
