Fire engulfs a slum in Chile

A huge fire broke out on Monday in a poor neighborhood in the city of Iquique, in northern Chile, consuming much of the city and destroying more than 100 houses.

Firefighters, who struggled to put out the fire, struggled to supply their trucks with water. The cause of the fire is still unknown and there is no information so far on any injuries, according to “Euronews”. The authorities concerned are preparing a series of shelters to house those displaced by the fire.
