Valparaíso, one of the oldest cities in Chile, is being savaged by a fire that has already killed 11 people and left thousands without a home. The fire started on Saturday afternoon in a forest on the highest part of the city, quickly moving down the city’s hilly landscape and destroying everything in its way. Portenos, as locals are known, have lived through fires and earthquakes for centuries.
