Mexico and Chile cancelled each other out to share the points in the Copa America clash.

Former Manchester City striker Matias Vuoso netted twice, including a 66th minute equaliser, for Mexico with Raul Jimenez getting the other.

But neither team could ever boast of domination in the game as Arturo Vidal struck two for Chile either side of an Eduardo Vargas goal.

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.

About 200 firefighters are still trying to control the blaze, which started on Friday afternoon at an illegal dump and was quickly spread by strong winds, leading officials to declare a state of emergency.

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.

Deputy Interior Minister Mahmud Aleuy said: "The fire is not controlled, but it is contained. What has been done is work to contain so the fire cannot expand."
