The team of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations and an Il-76 aircraft were sent to Chile after the Chilean government asked Russia for help. By the heavy, out-of-control fires over 1,600 houses were destroyed and at least eleven persons were killed. On Saturday, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet stated that they had gradually regained control over fires, as there were no major new fires. At the same time, she also warned that the danger was not yet banned as the forest fires would continue until April.
