Eight firefighting crews and two water-dropping planes managed to partially control a fire that broke out earlier Friday afternoon on the northern shore of the Kinneret near Kfar Nahum. Fire crews have managed to slow the spread of the fire, fire officials said.

Residents of Kfar Nahum who were evacuated from their homes earlier were expected to be allowed to return soon.
