The government of the state of Amazonas announced that the region entered an environmental emergency situation due to the wave of fires set with the intention of deforesting the jungle in northern Brazil.

In this sense, local authorities said that massive deforestation is directly affecting four municipalities and indirectly affecting another 15.

Governor Wilson Lima announced at a press conference that he sent humanitarian aid for those most affected by the forest fires. In addition, the governor assured that he would support rural producers through the renegotiation of debts.

It is feared that as a result of the fires the other municipalities will go on alert, in addition to losing a large part of the vegetation of the largest tropical forest in the world.

So far this year, 4,127 outbreaks of arson have been recorded in the state, which reflects an increase considering that last year at the same time there were 4,905 incidents.

As a result of deforestation work, this year's drought is expected to be longer and more intense than previous years, the authorities insisted.

The state of Amazonas, the largest in the country, includes within its limits the largest proportion of the Brazilian Amazon, which is threatened by illegal mining and the advance of the agricultural sector.
