A forest fire which broke out in northwestern Turkey Monday afternoon continues but has been brought under control, said local officials. 

No casualties have been reported so far from the blaze, which erupted in Kemalkoy in the Canakkale province.

A total of 130 firefighters, 20 water tankers, two bulldozers, one amphibious aircraft, and five helicopters have been battling the flames.

Enver Demirci, head of regional forest directorate, told reporters that forest teams first responded to the fire at 2.35 p.m. (1235GMT), just 15 minutes after it began.

According to initial reports, the fire has burned around two hectares of forestland and around eight hectares of agricultural land, Demirci said.

The fire was brought under control and cooling efforts continue, he added.
