Drone footage from Los Vilos captured the effects of and the ongoing battle against huge forest fires, Wednesday. Raging fires have so far killed 11 people and destroyed over 400,000 acres of forest across Chile in the last week alone.
Wildfires are quite a regular occurrence in Chile’s hot summer, but was particularly severe this year due to extremely high temperatures and a prolonged drought.
At least 11 people have been killed in the fires, including five firefighters, and several thousand people have been left homeless.
