Update: Chile Wildfires Situation

President Michelle Bachelet has recently claimed the wildfires are now mostly under control due to the arrival of rains and dropping of temperatures in recent hours. Yet, statistics from the forestry agency shows that since the beginning of the fire season in July 2016, flames have burnt over a half million hectares across the country.
