Fires in Latin America

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) caught images of smoke in Latin America. 
Fires were reported on 25 August 2016 in Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil. Those fires probably resulted from the land-clearing practices for crops or pastures. Bolivia declared a state of emergency as fires were raging more intensely in its borders.
