Pollution levels reached a new record high for a third day in a row in Singapore, as smoky haze from fires in Indonesia shrouded the city state.

The Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) hit 401 at 12:00 on Friday (04:00 GMT) - the highest in Singapore's history.

The index also reached 400 in one part of Indonesia, which is readying helicopters and cloud-seeding equipment in an effort to tackle the fires.

Hope they get the fires put out soon.  If these fires were started to burn down the forest for palm oil production I hope they catch that person or company responsible.  Babies and people with health problems already could die from breathing that smoke for too long.
