Caption: Oil well firefighter from the Kuwait Oil Company's Kuwait Wild Well Killers (KWWK) opening a valve during the fight to regain control of a blazing Iraqi oil well. This is in the Rumeilah Oil Field in southern Iraq. The wells were set alight by Iraqi troops retreating from the coalition invasion in March 2003. The wells are extinguished by pumping drilling mud into them at high pressure. Photographed in March 2003.
