Argentina Wildfire Forces Evacuations

Argentina Wildfire Forces Evacuations

Date:

Earlier this week a wildfire broke out in Argentina’s Cordoba province which forced residents and tourist out of their homes. The fire has burned roughly 6,600 acres and will grow.

Residents have been seen scooping water out of pools to try and fight the travelling embers. Officials claim to have been able to evacuate 20 families from their homes around the village of Villa Carlos Paz on Tuesday. The flames have continued to spread due to high winds and dry conditions.

The fire is expected to have come from someone who started it to make coffee. The suspect has since been detained and accused of intentionally starting the fire.
