A large brush fire broke out Wednesday afternoon near moshav Mishmar Ayalon in central Israel. Many families were evacuated. Fire crews were able to bring the flames under control several hours later.

Despite there being no reports of injuries or damage, police chose to evacuate the first line of homes closest to forested areas as a precaution.

Another wildfire broke out in the same area about six months ago.
