President Pinera had previously claimed that the more than 50 wildfires in Patagonia were under control.
He has changed his tune...after at least 6 fire fighters died...when high winds fanned the area...destroying 50,000 hectares/123,000 acres...so far.
Besides the 7 dead fire-fighters...2 suffered bad burns.
Pinera has also invoked anti-terror legislation...because officials suspect some fires were deliberately set...by radical indigena (Mapuche) activists.
Some Mapuche had recently burned a fire fighting helicopter.
The legislation allows severe punishments, long detention without charges...and anonymous witness testimony.
