Huge forest fires near city of Valparaiso have devastated area
At least one person was killed and thousands more evacuated as the fire spread and was fanned by strong winds.
Officials said they would bring charges against the owner of an illegal landfill site, where the fire is believed to have started.
More than 500 hectares were burned since the blaze started last Friday, and at least 19 firefighters have been injured, five of them seriously.
Forest fires are common in Chile at this time of year, and have been particularly savage this year after a hot, dry summer.
In 2014, a fire in Valparaiso killed 13 people and destroyed more than 2,000 homes.
