Fire crews in Buenos Aires were called to a blaze on Wednesday which swept across an ecological reserve not far from the city’s political and financial centre.

At least eight crews fought to bring the flames under control which raged more than 10 metres into the air.

The reserve which is considered the lung of Argentina’s capital with its green open spaces and lush vegetation, is home to a variety of wildlife including lizards, snakes and turtles.

It is not clear how much of the park has been destroyed. No injuries were reported.
