Fires in Brazil and Bolivia

Hundreds of fires were burning across South America on September 23, 2003. This Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Terra satellite shows fires (marked with red dots) spread over large areas of Brazil and Bolivia. A veil of smoke hangs over the region.
