Grassland fires continue to burn in Canada’s prairie provinces. This image from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite on June 22, 2002, shows a large fire (red dots) in Saskatchewan. The smoke plume is reaching hundreds of kilometers south.
Please note that the high-resolution scene provided here is 500 meters per pixel. For a copy of the scene at the sensor's fullest resolution, visit the MODIS Rapid Response Image Gallery.
