Wildfires unabated in Bolivia as crippling drought fuels flames

Firefighters in Bolivia are facing an uphill battle to contain raging wildfires in Cochabamba, as the Andean nation reels from crippling drought. The fires this year are Bolivia’s worst in at least two decades, with the size of burnt land across the country nearly doubling in under three weeks, destroying swaths of biodiverse forest and ranches and farms that sustain thousands of people. Wildfires in Bolivia this year have spread over 4.1 million hectares through Sept. 15, up from 2.1 million hectares less than three weeks earlier.
