A regional head of Brazil's environmental authority was fired on Wednesday, a week after being named, after he made public comments saying he would no longer burn machinery, some of it seized from illegal miners, in an area heavily affected by forest fires. Evandro Cunha dos Santos was tapped to run environmental enforcement in the northern state of Pará. The environmental agency he left, known as Ibama, and the ministry that oversees it, did not immediately respond to questions about his dismissal.
