Brazil's Amazon rainforest fire in 2019 has doubled the number of fires than in 2013. Amazon rainforest, home of millions of species of flora & fauna and one million indigenous people, has turned the day into night with its thick black smoke.

Amazon rainforest of Brazil covers most of the north-western region of Brazil. It extends into Columbia, Peru and some South American countries and is said to be the world's largest tropical rainforest. They produce 20% of the total oxygen in our atmosphere, therefore known as the planet's lungs.

According to the US space agency NASA, the overall fire activity this year was below average. Though the activity is found to be higher in Amazons and Rondonia, it has descended in the States of Mato Grosso and Para.
