A wildfire burning near the Chilean ports of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar has been contained but is still a threat, authorities said.
Up to 7,000 people had been evacuated from the area while the fire raged but now they are beginning to return home.

Officials said the fire has now been hemmed in, but warned that high temperatures, low humidity and strong winds remained a danger and could rekindle the blaze.
