Authorities declared emergencies in 11 municipalities in the southern Mexico state of Oaxaca due to raging forest fires, as high temperatures and dry conditions plague much of the country.
Forest fires were also reported Saturday in popular weekend retreats near the capital, such as Valle de Bravo and Tepoztlan, where the archaeological zone was closed.
