International Charter activated for Fires in Algeria

The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters was activated on 13 August 2012 to provide satellite imagery for the forest fires that have been ravaging the north of Algeria since June. They are a result of hotter than average summer heat waves that have been reported to reach as high as 50 degrees . Three people have been reported killed in the fires, two of which were a firefighter and forest worker attempting to put out a blaze.
