Wildfires Continue to Ravage Chile

Santiago, Wildfires continued to blaze unabated in Chile on Tuesday after destroying nearly 140,000 hectares of forest and grasslands.

According to the country’s National Forest Corporation (CONAF), 110,000 fires were being fought, with those in the O’Higgins and Maule regions being the most active.

The weather forecast for the coming days remains a concern as temperatures of up to 39 degrees Celsius could render fighting the fire even more difficult, dpa reported.

Emergency services have been battling the flames for days, bringing hundreds of fires under control.
