The burning Amazon rainforest caused it to go pitch black in Sao Paulo, Brazil in the middle of the day.
There is an 83% increase in fires in the Amazon this year over the same period last year.
Because of its natural moisture and humidity, the Amazon has historically been fire-resistant. Wildfires occurring in the tropical forest today are the result of human activity and droughts.

Yesterday in downtown Chicago, a window washer’s rope snapped, leaving him dangling more than 50 floors above the street.
Chicago firefighters hoisted him more than 80 feet to safety on the roof. Heavy rain and with nearby lightning strikes added to the ordeal.
The window washer declined medical attention and will be back on the job today.
