أكثر من 100 قتيل في حرائق الغابات في تشيلي

By Jordi Bou

February 5, 2024 - رجال الإطفاء في وسط تشيلي يكافحون حرائق الغابات الضخمة التي أودت بحياة ما لا يقل عن 112 شخصاً ودمرت أحياء بأكملها. المئات لا يزالون في عداد المفقودين.

The fires erupted on Friday, February 2, in Viña del Mar, a city of roughly 330,000, and swept through the smaller neighbouring cities of Quilpué, Limache, and Villa Alemana.

Curfews have been imposed in those cities as part of efforts to prevent looting.

The destruction in the Valparaíso region came as dozens of fires were burning across central and southern Chile, amid what officials have said are higher-than-normal temperatures for this time of year.
