Firefighters continued with their attempts to extinguish fast-moving forest fires in Valparaiso, as seen on footage from Wednesday. The forest fires have caused significant damage and have prompted the authorities to declare a red alert.
Footage shows an up-close glimpse of the firefighters in action, standing on a cliff and spraying water on a blaze-engulfed patch of land below them.
At least... Еще 150 homes have been damaged because of the fire, according to the National Emergency Office (ONEMI). Chilean authorities have decreed a red alert in the region.
More than 5,440 people have had their power cut in the area because of the fire. Jorge Martinez, Mayor of Valparaíso, said that «everything indicates» that the fire was intentional.
