Russia Forest Fires

Russia Forest Fires

FILE - In this Aug 6, 2010 file photo, tourists wear masks protecting them from the thickest blanket of smog, as they walk along Red Square, with St. Basil Cathedral in the background, in Moscow, Russia. A devastating wave of wildfires across Russia could ravage millions of acres of forests and cause worse damage than last year's catastrophic blazes, environmentalists and officials said Thursday June 9 2011. In 2010, an unprecedented heat-wave triggered fires that killed 55 people, destroyed thousands of houses and 2.6 million hectares (6.4 million acres) of forests, an area slightly larger than Oregon.
