Russian tourists, who were evacuated the day before, on July 29, together with other guests of the Titanic hotel in the Turkish region of Bodrum, returned to their place of residence in the evening. The evacuation was caused by forest fires approaching the hotel, RIA Novosti reports.

The hotel management decided not to wait for a dangerous situation. The evacuation was used as a "preventive measure" because there is a gas pipeline nearby. Since the road was blocked because of the fire, tourists were taken out by sea.

The hotel explained that none of the tourists complained about their health, the daily routine was restored. Firefighters took control of the fire.

The Russians, who bought package tours to Turkey, will get assistance with evacuation in case of emergency. According to the head of the Tourpomosch Association Alexander Osaulenko, in case of an independent trip, the tourists will have to look for a way out of the situation themselves.

The fire broke out on June 28, near the popular resort of Manavgat. The intense heat in the region became the reason for the fire. Three people became victims of the fire, more than 120 received injuries of varying severity.

Russian diplomats from the Consulate General in Antalya noted that they had no information about  injured Russian citizens.
