Chile experiences worst forest fires in modern history
In January, Chile experienced the worst forest fires in modern history. Fires ravaged central-south Chile killing at least 11 people, displacing thousands and destroying entire villages. The international community reacted swiftly to aid the country. “We have never seen anything on this scale, never in the history of Chile,” President Michelle Bachelet, who has declared a state of emergency in Santiago.
