Dec. 7, 2010: A burnt forest is seen after a massive wildfire near the Kibbutz of Beit Oren in the Carmel, northern Israel. The fire broke out on Dec. 2 and burned a 20-square-mile area in the Carmel forest, a popular nature spot on Haifa's outskirts. The blaze was brought under control on Dec. 5 and damages overall have been estimated in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Although the wildfire was small by international standards, it was considered a calamity in Israel, where only 7 percent of the land is wooded.
