Fires in Western Canada
Dozens of large fires were burning across British Columbia, Canada, on 20 August 2003. The fires (marked with yellow) have forced hundreds of people to evacuate their homes and put thousands on evacuation alert. This image of the fires was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite. British Columbia is at top left, with Alberta to the east. At the bottom are Washington, Idaho, and Montana. The high-resolution image provided above is 500 meters per pixel. The MODIS Rapid Response System provides this image at MODIS’ maximum spatial resolution of 250 meters.
