Residents of the Druze village of Yarka in northern Israel were evacuated Thursday after a brush fire broke out close to one of the neighborhoods. No casualties were reported in the incident. At least one home was torched.

A spokesperson for the Israel Fire and Rescue Services said four firefighting teams and four firefighting aircrafts are currently present at the scene.

Last month, a fire broke out at seven different locations in the Ein HaShofet forest, prompting suspicions of arson.
