Caption: Oil well fire clean-up. Backhoe excavator being used to clear the area around a recently- extinguished oil well fire in Iraq. This is being done by firefighters from Boots and Coots, a Halliburton company. Retreating Iraqi troops set fire to several well heads in the Rumeilah Oil Field in southern Iraq during the coalition invasion in March 2003. The well fire was extinguished with water, and the area is being cleaned before the gusher is stopped with drilling mud. Photographed in March 2003.
