Dozens of wild fires tore through central Chile destroying scores of homes just as fire season was getting underway in the South American country. Local media reported there were 44 blazes active on Thursday with at least eight fires still burning in the Valparaiso region alone by Friday. Perhaps the hardest hit municipality was Limache where the mayor said some 60 homes were destroyed. The O’Higgins region south of Valparaiso was also hard hit. In total, local media reported more than 2,600 hectares have burned.Most the blazes have been contained or put out, but firefighters were still working to contain at least 10 fires as of Friday afternoon.
