The massive wildfire was originally contained on Tuesday after three days of firefighting efforts. The fire burned nearly 2,000 hectares (4,940 acres) of land, with Fire Chief Insp.-Gen. Dedi Simchi saying on Monday evening that the fire is on the scale of the Carmel Fire, which burned large swaths of land in northern Israel in 2010, killing 44 people.
Hundreds of firefighters worked overnight at a number of hot spots to extinguish the fires. On Tuesday morning, eight firefighting aircraft and helicopters began operating to fight the flames, with firefighters aiming to make as much progress as possible while winds were low and humidity was high in order to prevent the spread of the fire.
