Smoke From Fires in Bolivia

18.8S 66.9W

September 8th, 2011 Category: Fires

South America - September 6th, 2011

Visible in the upper right quadrant of the thumbnail image are wildfires burning in Bolivia. The Andes Mountains prevent the smoke from blowing to the northwest.

Most of these fires were probably set to clear land for agriculture, then began to burn out of control due to strong winds and dry conditions. The situation is similar to last year’s wildfire problems in the same region (click here for previous images).
