Mexico – April 23rd, 2013

Although many forest fires can be seen across the Yucatán Peninsula, the over 480 forest fires reported in the state of Yucatán, in the northern part of the peninsula, so far this year is actually less than usual, according to Mexican authorities. The fires have scorched a little over 2,400 hectares (4,930 acres), 30 percent under the total for the same period last year. The reason for the decrease is likely due to heavier rains during the dry season.
