Great news...a slightly freak rain storm has hit Santiago and the coast. It's tipping it down, something everyone has been openly hoping for since the fire in Quintay started a few days ago and which no one thought would actually happen. It very rarely rains this early in the year. So the fire has been slowed before it could do any damage to residential areas and it should be completely out withing a few days. Good stuff.
Shame about the 4000 hectares of forest lost though.
