Fires down to 28, but average weekly outbreaks double that of 2019

Although forest fires have dropped by approximately 50 per cent in the last week to 28, the average daily number of hot spots (smaller events) is 135 per cent higher than the average for the same period in 2019 due to climate and human intervention. Although there is a decreasing trend of fires due to the rains that have been falling since last week, the affectation reaches an area of more than 1.8 million hectares nationwide.
