Riau - March 2, 2014. Pak Sunarto, a village elder, examines an area at Tanjung Leban Village that was burned by fire. He makes frequent visits since the fire could be reignited at any time due to dry vegetation and heat.
Fire ravaged over 3000 hectares of land at Tanjung Leban Village. Over 200 villagers were evacuated and several homes were destroyed. The fire is suspected to have started from a "slash and burn" land clearing method.
