Firefighters on Sunday contained a fire that erupted in a forestland of western Turkey's Aegean province of Izmir.

The fire broke out in maquis shrubland near summer homes in the Dikili region north of the Çandarli neighborhood on Sunday.

Five helicopters and 17 water tenders battled to contain the fire.

The cause of the blaze remains unclear, but the flames spread due to windy conditions, Dikili Mayor Adil Kırgöz told Anadolu Agency.

Kırgöz said that the fire did not result in any casualties.
