At least 123 people have been killed and 1,600 have been left homeless by forest fires in central Chile’s Valparaiso region

Türkiye’s Foreign Ministry offered its heartfelt condolences to Chile Monday over the casualties and damage caused by wildfires that broke out in its Valparaiso region.

“We extend our heartfelt condolences to the friendly people and government of Chile and in particular to the families who are grieving over the loss of their loved ones and wish a swift recovery to the injured,” the ministry said in a statement.

At least 123 people have been killed and 1,600 have been left homeless by forest fires in central Chile’s Valparaiso region, authorities said Sunday.

Chile’s Legal Medical Service, the state coroner, has identified 32 people.

“The forensic institution delivers its deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims,” it said in a statement.

There are 161 active fires across the country, according to Alvaro Hormazabal, director of the National Disaster Prevention and Response Service.

The flames almost destroyed a botanical garden founded in 1931 in Vina del Mar.
