Fire rages in Chile national park

Firefighters are battling strong winds to control a fire in Chile's national park Torres del Paine.

Chilean authorities have been forced to close Torres del Paine national park after a fire destroyed more than 14,000 acres of land.

More than 100 firemen are trying to control the flames but strong winds are hampering the efforts.

Hundreds of tourists have been evacuated from the area.
