In the middle of the day on Monday, the city of Sao Paulo was covered with a blanket of black smoke.

According to local media reports, these forest fires had been going on for several days. Josélia Pegorim, Climatempo meteorologist explained,

The smoke did not come from fires from the state of São Paulo, but from very dense and wide fires that have been going on for several days in Rondônia and Bolivia. The cold front changed the direction of the winds and transported this smoke to São Paulo.
