Burn offs

View of fire from work on Thursday afternoon.
View from the air on Friday afternoon.

Farmers are burning off their stubble at the moment and DEC (Dept. Environment and Conservavtion) are doing their 'controlled' burnoffs.
One of these (not pictured) was billowing very black smoke last week, not far from town.
They had been burning off green waste at the tip and the wind changed and set the rest of the tip on fire. Yuck.
