Devastating Fire in Brazil

We had a lot of forest fires in Sweden this dry summer. Forests may regrow, however. Some biologists even say it is positive for the ecology that there is a fire now and then.

In Brazil, however, the National Museum has been devastated by fire. A lot of archaeological and historical artefacts have been destroyed, many items that cannot be replaced. The origin of the fire is yet unknown.

This Brazilian fire is a much worse fire than all of the forest fires in Sweden. It puts the Swedish fires in perspective.
