Flames from raging wildfire surround house and swimming pool in Chile

Terrifying footage shows flames from a raging wildfire surrounding a home and swimming pool in Chile.

Forest fires, which have spread over 270,000 hectares (667,000 acres) of land, have killed at least 24 people in south-central regions of the country.

In videos shared from the city of Arauco, raging flames can be seen lighting the sky orange as a helicopter appears to take water from the pool to dump on the fire.

Recent wildfires are already the deadliest blazes in Chile’s recent history.
