On September 19, 2014, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured these images of the King fire in Eldorado National Forest. In the false-color (top) image, burned forest appears red; unaffected forests are green; cleared forest is beige; and smoke is blue. The natural-color (bottom) image shows several smoke plumes rising from the leading edge of the fire and blowing west. As of September 23, the blaze had charred 36,320 hectares (89,571 acres).
