Brazil is not the only country struggling to battle fires, neighboring Bolivia has been fighting its own wildfires. These are affecting at least one million hectares of land, nearly the size of twelve New York cities. Aerial footage shows rampant blazes burning across forests and savannah near Bolivia's border with Paraguay and Brazil.
