Chongqing, a city in Southwest China, has been battling wildfires caused by extreme heat waves in August 2022. The fires were scattered among forests in Jiangjin, Dazu, Tongliang and Banan districts in the southwestern municipality. According to the local water resources bureau, 51 rivers in the city have stopped flowing and 24 reservoirs have dried up. With the scorching heat and lack of precipitation, Chongqing issued a red alert, the highest warning level, for forest fires in most districts and counties from Aug 16 to 23. Facing the raging flames, people from all walks of life have voluntarily pitched in to jointly snuff out the blazes, displaying extraordinary heroism.
