Chile Requests International Help to Fight Forest Fires #shorts.

Chile's government called for international help Saturday to fight the devastating forest fires ravaging thousands of hectares and killing nearly two dozen people.

Interior Minister Carolina Toha said they are asking for support from Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay after reporting 22 deaths from the severe forest fires that have destroyed some 40,000 hectares (99,000 acres) in central and southern Chile.

Dozens of wildfires blazing through Chile caused the government to extend an emergency order Friday, as a scorching summer heatwave complicates efforts to control fires.
