Fire in Torres del Paine park in Chile is out of control

Help

Chilean authorities have been forced to close Torres del Paine national park after a fire destroyed more than 14,000 acres of land.

More than 100 firemen are trying to control the flames but strong winds are hampering the efforts.

Hundreds of tourists have been evacuated from the area.
