Fawn Peak Complex Fire in Washington

Fawn Peak Complex Fire in Washington

Washington’s Fawn Peak Complex Fire was actively burning on multiple fronts on July 29, 2003, when this Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image was captured by the Aqua satellite. The locations of active fire detections have been marked in yellow in the image, and a large plume of smoke is visible as well. This fire has been burning for a month in the Pasayten Wilderness Area near the Washington-British Columbia border.
