As firefighters came the closest they have been since Thursday at gaining control over the Carmel fire, the Prime Minister's Office said that it approached the Fire Commissioner four months ago about securing fire-fighting aircraft, but received no answer, in a statement released Sunday.

PMO Director-General Eyal Gabai told Israel Radio that in all previous reports relating to the fire service, there was a budget demand, but no request for fire-fighting aircraft.
