Caption: Wildfires. Satellite image of smoke plumes rising from wildfires in Spain and Portugal in early August 2006. Winds are blowing the smoke out over the Atlantic Ocean. The fires engulfed several thousand hectares of land, and are thought to have been started deliberately, on wooded slopes near residential areas. To date (8th August), three people are known to have died in Galicia, northwestern Spain (top centre). Image taken by the MODIS instrument on NASA's Terra satellite at 11:10 GMT on 7th August 2006.
