Forest fires in Indonesia

Were the trees burnt on purpose this time again? We know the fact over the years they had been burning them and the smells travelled all the way to Singapore for months..

The fires come from two sources, local farmers burning stubble which is a an age old practice and companies (some from Sg) which are burning rain forest to plant palm trees. It's the later which is the problem because of the scale of the burn off.
