A helicopter carries water before releasing it over a forest fire near the settlement of Kustarevka in Ryazan region, some 340 km (211 miles) southeast of Moscow, August 10, 2010. Russia's deadly summer heatwave will weaken a recovery from last year's slump, economists predicted on Tuesday as wildfires raged on in several provinces and forecasters said sweltering weather won't abate this week.

Firefighters' equipment are seen on the wall at a fire station in Mostar
Firefighters' equipment are seen on the wall at a fire station in Mostar, January 30, 2013. Paralysed by politicking, the Bosnian town of Mostar has entered 2013 without a budget to run soup-kitchens or kindergartens, to pay fire-fighters or heat schools. The cash is running out, and tensions are rising. It's a situation that observers say cannot go on, but somehow does, and in many ways is a microcosm of Bosnia in its dysfunction and stunted development.
With neighbouring Croatia set to join the European Union on July 1, Mostar stands as a grim example of how far the country has fallen behind. REUTERS/Dado Ruvic (BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - Tags: SOCIETY BUSINESS EMPLOYMENT)

An Evergreen 747 Supertanker makes a flame retardant drop in the Acton area in California August 31, 2009. As of Monday evening, a total of 6,300 homes throughout the fire zone were under evacuation orders, authorities said. The so-called Station Fire more than doubled in size as it burned out of control for a sixth day, charring 105,000 acres (42,500 hectares), up from 42,000 acres (17,000 hectares) late on Sunday, and sending up towering palls of smoke that fouled the air for miles (km) around. The converted 747 is the largest tanker aircraft in use with a payload of more than 20,000 gallons. REUTERS/Gene Blevins (UNITED STATES DISASTER TRANSPORT ENVIRONMENT IMAGES OF THE DAY)
