Experts are saying the effects may linger for weeks and harken back memories to the big Asian haze in 1997 and 1998.
Clearly the lessons of the time on the dangers of slash and burn fires have not been learned.
Thailand has its own rising levels of haze in Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, where similar burning is creating health concerns.
