Fires continue to hit Argentina hard

Fires continue to hit Argentina

Fires continued to ravage Argentina’s northeastern province of Corrientes on Monday, according to authorities.

Authorities said 519,000 hectares have been affected by the blazes, with homes and hotels evacuated due to the advancing flames.

The head of Civil Defense Operations in Corrientes, Orlando Bertoni, said the most troubling area is the town of Ituzaingó.

Bertoni told local news agency Télam that a large hotel chain belonging to Howard Johnson Co. which sits on the banks of the Paraná River had to be evacuated due to the threat of fires and smoke alongside homes in the affected area.

He added that authorities have extinguished one fire but others remain which continue to affect forests, fields and estuaries.
