February 5, 2024 - Los bomberos del centro de Chile luchan con enormes incendiosforestales que han matado a por lo menos 112 personas y arrasadovecindarios enteros. Hay cientos de desaparecidos.

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.
