Peat fire. A firefighter flooding a peat bog to extinguish an underground fire. In extreme drought conditions peat bogs dry out and can catch light. They tend to burn with a smouldering action, but can continue for months or even years and produce large volumes of choking smoke. Photographed in the summer of 2010 near Moscow, Russia.
