Wildfires that have engulfed south and southwest Turkey since July 28 are believed to be the worst to hit the country in living memory.
Efforts are underway to put out the remaining 13 blazes in Adana, Antalya, Aydin, Denizli, Isparta and Mugla provinces, Turkey's Agriculture and Forestry Minister Bekir Pakdemirli says.
Officials say the fire did not damage the main units of the Kemerkoy coal-fuelled power plant in Mugla, southwest Turkey but forced nearby residents to flee in boats and cars.
As Turkey battles wildfires, experts warn that protecting the region's natural habitat is more important than taking quick actions that could be harmful in the long term.
Forest fires have reached more residential areas of southern Turkey, forcing evacuations after the firefighters and volunteers helped contain 152 fires since July 28.
At least four dead and scores injured as firefighters, planes and helicopters try to douse multiple blazes amid suspicions of arson.
The blaze broke out on Sunday in four different regions in Mugla and Izmir provinces, according to the Agriculture and Forest Ministry. Officials say the fires are now under control.
