Caption: Fire fighters try to stop the huge flames at a Qayyarah oil well with just a water hose, at the same time sand is being put into the oil sludge to prevent it from spreading. The heat is unbearable as is the black sticky smoke. About 20 large oil wells are burning, covering the city in a poisoning black smoke for the months to come.
