The situation is getting worse.

As a result, the emergency situation is getting worse.” However, she also said that the situation must be controlled. Last Friday, there were new reports of fire spread in 76 regions.
On Saturday it was extended to 16 more places. There are fears that the situation could get out of control if it is not alerted now. The local temperature exceeded 104 degrees Fahrenheit or 40 degrees Celsius.
Meanwhile, a rescue helicopter crashed on Friday, killing the driver and a mechanic.
A helicopter crash also occurred last week. Currently, there are 178 fires burning across the country. As a result, anxiety is on the rise. Grapes, apples and berries are mainly grown in the areas where the fire has spread. As a result, this fire caused a huge loss in terms of its production and export. Faced with this situation, countries like America, Argentina, Spain, Brazil, Ecuador, and Venezuela have extended their aid to Chile. Planes and firefighters are being sent. All in all, forest fires are practically a war situation in Chile.
