Fawn Peak Complex Fire in Washington

Fawn Peak Complex Fire in Washington

According to reports from the National Interagency Fire Center, numerous previously unburned areas within the perimeter of the Fawn Peak Complex Fire were burning on July 30, 2003. This report is confirmed by the more compact nature of the active fire detections observed by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite compared to the previous day’s image.

The high-resolution image provided above is 500 meters per pixel. The MODIS Rapid Response System provides this image at MODIS’ maximum spatial resolution of 250 meters.
