France – August 26th, 2012

Firefighters are working to try to control a series of forest fires in the south of France, near Montpellier and Marseille. The biggest, around Montaud and Saint-Bauzille-de-Montmel in the Hérault countryside north of Montpellier, destroyed more than 2,600 hectares of woodland and a dozen homes. Here, a plume of smoke from a fire blows in a curved, southeasterly direction over the Mediterranean Sea.
