Mindestens 112 Tote durch Brände in Chile

By Jordi Bou

February 5, 2024 - Feuerwehren in Zentral-Chile kämpfen mit riesigen Waldbränden, in denen mindestens 120 Personen umgekommen und ganze Viertel verbrannt sind. Hunderte Menschen werden noch vermisst.

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.
