A massive fire erupted near a NATO base in the Buca district, near Izmir, Turkey. The fire broke out on Sunday evening in western Turkey. The fire blew through the grassy wooded area and is now perilously near NATO’s military base pushed forward by strong winds.
The NATO base in proximity to the inferno is Allied Land Command (LANDCOM), the standing headquarters for NATO land forces in the region. The Commander LANDCOM is the prime land warfare advisor to the Alliance. From its Wikipedia page we learn that “when directed by the Supreme Allied Commander Europe, it provides the core of the headquarters responsible for the conduct of land operations. The command is based at Sirinyer (Buca), ?zmir in Turkey.
