The indigenous communities of the Bolivian Amazon have demanded the Government's help to stop the forest fires that this weekend destroyed homes and forced evacuations north of La Paz.

During September and October, satellites detected numerous fires in the lowlands of Bolivia, according to a recent NASA report, whose images from space still show enormous banks of smoke over Bolivian territory.

However, the Vice Minister of Civil Defense, Juan Carlos Calvimontes, indicated in a press report that “the fire is under control” and assured that the damage to the indigenous communities had been minor.

The lack of rain, high temperatures and strong winds are prolonging the fires for almost four months, longer than usual. Smoke from the fires has also reached several cities, such as Santa Cruz and La Paz.
