Police arrested three men for allegedly attempting to start fires as the nation fights one of the hottest days in memory and fires erupt across the land, Police spokesperson said on Friday. 
The men were 15, 19, and 30 years old. 
The massive heat had caused train tracks to expand, halting train departures out of safety concerns.
Ten thousand dunams of Ben Shemen forest were burnt and 62 families made homeless when Moshav Mevo Modiin burned down on Thursday.
