Disastrous Fire @ Torres del Paine

More than 8500 hectares already burned. Winds blowing at about 120km/h.

The park will be closed at least all of January.

Extremely unfortunate.
Looks like at least parts of the fire are slowly being contained though.
This blog (although from managers of a property in tdp) seems to have a map and reasonably frequent updates. Las Torres Hotel Blog
I was in the process of putting together a trip for late Feb. Weighing the options on going ahead.
Any thoughts?
