Caption: Oil well fire clean-up. Firefighters working on a recently-extinguished oil well in Iraq. These firefighters are from the Kuwait Oil Company's Kuwait Wild Well Killers (KWWK). 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 gusher was later stopped with drilling mud. Photographed in March 2003.
