Fires on Arunachala

The summer in 2012, has been bad for fires on Arunachala. The first major fire occurred on April 20th and became particularly serious because of fierce winds fanning the flames. The area of the fire is marked on the below map.

Second Fire

Some two weeks later, after the biggest fire in almost a decade, another large fire broke out, this time on the North Side of Arunachala. See below map.
