Clay has taken several pics. All of them in Corrientes province of Argentina, near River Plate (Rio de la Plata). The next major town is Santa Fe, about 60 mi S of the fire.

"Oh! Oh! I'm on fire!".....

My memory tells me it's in South America, perhaps Argentina as you Tweeps suggest. I recall passing over mid SA one day and the smoke haze was so thick it covered the continent west to east!

the coordinates I've indicated are the ISS position at the moment of the shot

I can't find the exact field...Clay really zoomed in on this one!...but the fields in the area of your coordinates look similar. I don't know how pinpoint accurate those coordinates can be with the ISS traveling at 17,500 miles per hour!

aparentemente seria provincia de Chaco en Argentina....

Intentional agricultural burning. The white smoke hints to straw being burnt. Could be anywhere.
