Fires in Myanmar - March 9th, 2009

Smoke from fires burning in eastern India and northwestern Myanmar (Burma) hangs over southeastern Myanmar and Thailand.

Many of these fires were likely set intentionally by people, as during the dry season it is common practice for farmers to burn land in order to clear it for agriculture.
