Israeli Forest Fire

Location: Israel
December 5, 2010

As a firefighting plane flies over, members of the Cohen family walk next to the remains of their house, burnt in the fire, in the youth village (boarding school) of Yemin Orde, near the northern city of Haifa, Israel, Sunday, Dec. 5, 2010. The world’s largest flying fire extinguisher _ a Boeing 747 from the U.S. carrying 20,000 gallons of water and fire retardants _ joined the battle Sunday against an inferno that raged for a fourth day in northern Israel, giving officials hope they can bring the country’s worst forest fire under control by the end of the day.
