NASA/NOAA Satellite Sees Western U.S. High Mountain Blazes
January 15, 2013
Two of the most destructive fires in the history of Colorado and New Mexico have both now been contained. These image comparisons show how the Little Bear Fire and the High Park Fire grew over a 24-hour time period from June 9 to June 10. The red contours on the images represent areas of heat showing active fires. Taken by the VIIRS instrument, these images provide active fire data as emergency response teams continue to fight the fires.
