The fires without

A meteorological map from last night, below, seems to indicate that there were showers occuring at the time in the upper left quadrant.


The image is misleading. In the Burdekin, much of which is between the 50 & 100km circles of the map, they still burn sugar cane before harvesting; & the supposed "showers" are, in fact, smoke from the fires. There are three sugar mills within that segment—& a fourth at Giru, just outside it—& in the farms that supply the mills there are probably six to eight fires each night in each area.
