Fire in Argentina's UNESCO-listed national park scorches some 2,500 acres

Buenos Aires, Jan 29 (UNI) A fire that broke out last Thursday in Argentina's Los Alerces National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and surrounding areas has already destroyed over 1,000 hectares of land (2,471 acres), a park official said on Monday.
"Currently, the fire continues to be active in all the sectors, having already affected over 1,000 hectares," Mario Cardenas, the park's emergency department chief, was quoted as saying by Argentine news agency Telam.
Over 250 firefighters are putting out the blaze in the national park, which is home to Argentina's largest forest of the Patagonian cypress, or Fitzroya, one of the planet's longest-living tree species.
