Very high to extreme fire danger existed in Arizona (left) and New Mexico (right) on June 11, 2003. Several wildfires were burning near the states’ border on June 10, 2003, and were detected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite. The fires have been marked with red outlines. To the west of the fire in Arizona, the burn scar of last year’s Rodeo-Chediski Fire is visible as a rust-colored area amid the deep green of the forested mountains.
