More than 20 people have died in Chile after wildfires swept through 40,000 hectares (99,000 acres) of land.

The government has declared a state of emergency in two regions – Biobío and Ñuble – and is asking for help from neighbouring countries.

The fires took hold as temperatures surged across the country, and hundreds of homes have been damaged.
