Smoke Billows From Wildfire in Northern Patagonia

Wildfires were raging across several provinces of Argentina, the National Fire Management Service (SNMF) said on January 13, fuelled by drought and high summer temperatures.

In the province of Rio Negro, 84 emergency personnel and five planes were deployed to combat the fires on January 13, the SNMF report said.
