A burnt forest is seen after a massive wildfire in the Carmel, northern Israel, Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2010. The fire broke out Thursday and burned a 20-square-mile (50-square-kilometer) area in the Carmel forest, a popular nature spot on Haifa's outskirts. The blaze was brought under control late Sunday 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. less
