Laguna Verde sector, Valparaiso, Chile.

The community of Laguna Verde begins recovery after a drought- and wind-fueled fire on January 2, 2017. This fire is reminiscent of what was witnessed in Chile in 2014, and of a global pattern of loss when vegetation, houses and fire mix.

This fire killed one, injured 19, and destroyed over 100 houses. The work of recovery continues in Laguna Verde, and elsewhere where wildfire and homes meet.
