Firefighters fought brush fires that burned into the evening hours on Friday after a day of high temperatures across the country. A blaze near Rosh Ha'ayin threatened to engulf suburban houses early Friday evening, as crews fought fires near the Galilee town of Kfar Kana and in other locations. Firefighters aided by aircraft brought a large brush fire in in the northwestern Galilee under control Friday evening as it burned near Moshav Ya'ara. A section of Road 899 was closed because of the blaze. Another large fire caused power outages in the Zichron Ya'akov area earlier Friday.
