The State Comptroller, Micha Lindenstrauss, said on Tuesday that his full report into the Carmel Fire disaster would be submitted to Knesset within the next month.

The December 2010 fire claimed the lives of 44 people, among them 37 prison service cadets and their commanding officers, who died when their bus was engulfed by flames.

The fire also caused widespread damage to land and property, totaling million of shekels. An estimated 1.5 million trees were destroyed in the fire.
