A blaze in Kiryat Tivon is now under control, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said Friday.
Aharonovitch added that Haifa's Denya area is safe and that fire has been pushed back from the area
"We are not sending fire crews into the forests, this is too dangerous. The focus is on planes. We have Israeli and foreign planes dousing the flames, and we need more planes," said Aharonovitch.
