Fire TDP 2011

News related to the fire in Tores del Paine National Park in December 2011 - January 2012

EcoCamp Patagonia set to reopen!

We are very happy to announce that the fire in Torres del Paine National Park, which has affected over 12,000 hectares in the park’s south-western sector, is currently under control. This means that the fire is no longer expanding and that the almost 800 firefighters working to control the blaze have the focal points under control and are working to extinguish the fire.

Close to having the fire in Torres del Paine under complete control!

A day of low wind, which has allowed helicopter flight and reduced the speed of the fire’s expansion, together with moderately intense rain have helped to control the fire in Torres de Paine National Park. The authorities predict that today they will have three of the six remaining focus areas under control and should these conditions remain, we will be close to having the fire under complete control.
