Azul was a remote settlement in Peru. When the South America Firestorm took hold by ravaging fires across Central America, GDI claimed that their aircraft will save the civilians and evacuate them to the coast of Chile. Not all evacuations proved successful for GDI such as Azul having to wait for evacuation. The fires ripped down trees, filling the air with black smoke and ash but causing the sea to catch fire. One person, Iselvina Flores survived the fires and saw these which she was frightened by the tragedy. The evacuations and South America Firestorm itself had just happened before the start of a Second Tiberium War in September 2030.
