Smoke rises over a deforested plot of the Amazon jungle in Porto Velho, Rondonia State, Brazil, August 24, 2019. Wildfires are raging in areas where Brazil's agricultural frontier has pushed into the Amazon basin and spurred deforestation. Blazes are common in the dry season, but are also deliberately set by farmers illegally deforesting land for cattle ranching. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino
