As more than 5,000 firefighters battled the blazes for the 11th consecutive day, the rain brought relief to some areas of Turkey.
In southwest Antalya, after heavy rains, authorities were able to control the fires.
The provincial capital Mugla, in the neighboring Mugla province, was battling the fires.
