More international help has been arriving in Chile to help the country fight the worst wildfire in the country's modern history.

Russia has sent a super-tanker aircraft capable of carrying tons of water to douse the fires.

The series of fast-spreading fires mostly in Chile's central region, are being fanned by strong winds, high temperatures and a prolonged drought.

One town, Santa Olga, has been completely destroyed by the blaze.
