Forest fires in Chubut Province, Argentina

i confess... i'm not a follower of local news anywhere, and it's only on rare occasions that i tune in to something local... this reuters story caught my eye for a couple of reasons... one, i happen to be in residence in my part-time home in buenos aires at the moment... and, two, the central-east portion of the country that includes buenos aires has been inundated with heavy rains the past few days, and i guess i didn't realize that more southerly parts of the country were battling severe dry weather...

Fires continued to blaze through forests in southern Argentina
, burning over 7000 acres of land.

Firefighters battled forest fires in Argentina's Patagonia region on Thursday, but thousand-year-old trees in a national park were not threatened by the flames, a provincial official said.
