1 min read

Residents in the Brazilian city of Porto Velho city were battling blazes spreading in the dry brush on 16 August, as firefighters arrived at the remote jungle location to fight the fires that continue to threaten the Amazon.

Smoke could be seen billowing as the fire edged closer to a farmer’s home in an area of the Amazon rainforest in Rondônia state. ‘We are poor, my salary is just to feed my family. The fire comes to end everything in a fraction of seconds,’ local resident Rosalino De Oliveira said.
