Why is this happening?

The region has become drier due to unprecedented deforestation. The fires are virtually impossible to control as a result of the dry grasslands and lack of rain.

How does this start?

The significant factors that contribute to deforestation are logging and illegal large-scale feed crops and cattle operations.
