Fires in Florida
November 26, 2007
Multiple wildfires have been burning in Florida throughout early May 2006. This image of the area around Lake Okeechobee in central Florida was captured on May 14 by the MODIS on NASA's Aqua satellite. Locations of actively burning fires that MODIS detected are outlined in red. South of the lake, the Berg Fire had burned nearly 30,000 acres as of May 17, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. The fire to the north of the lake is the OK-KPSP-757 Fire.
