By tonight the still-raging fire had grown to more than 180 hectares and cannot be contained in Santo Domingo, at San Antonio’s Commune.

The efforts for trying to control the fire have been unsuccessful because of the strong winds that are difficulting its fighting.

The Regional administration has decreed red alert, while more than 8 firefighter brigades ( from Rapel, San Antonio, El Tabo and Santo Domingo) are working to control the fire.

In addition they count with the support of Conaf and air backing.
