Fires in Florida

18 May 2006

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 14 May 2006 by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (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 12,000 ha as of 17 May, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. The fire to the north of the lake is the OK-KPSP-757 Fire.
