So far, some 530,000 hectares have been devastated by fire, while last year at this time they were 105,000. The flames have devastated hundreds of homes causing the evacuation of more than 200,000 residents.
Despite the more than 14,000 firefighters who are on the front line, the lack of personnel has taken a toll on the extinction efforts, which has caused drastic decisions to be made such as which areas to save and which not.
The Guard has already mobilized a crew of helicopters and deployed about 250 troops, while the Army has sent several C-130 aircraft specially equipped to act as tankers.
