Wildfires prompt state of catastrophe in Chile

Chilean authorities have declared a state of catastrophe as wildfires rage through hundreds of square kilometers in the central parts of the western Latin American country.

The announcement was made on Saturday after forest fires set more than 450 square kilometers ablaze in the central O’Higgins region, an area roughly the size of the Austrian capital, Vienna.
