Fires erupted in the Serra do Tabuleiro region southern Brazil on Tuesday.
Firefighters were battling the flames with the help of helicopters as the blaze burned the bone dry vegetation around it a result of dry weather.
The number of fires in 2019 across Brazil has surpassed 100,000, which is about 45% more than during the same period a year ago.
