The area affected by the B & B Complex Fire in Oregon swelled to more than 61,000 acres as of September 3, 2003. This image of the complex was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite on September 2, and it shows the active fire detections observed by the sensor marked in yellow with a red outline. The fire is burning in terrain on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Range Mountains, which stand out in forested green in the center of the image.
A pair of fires in Oregon grew more than 9,000 combined acres between September 18 and 19, 2008, according to the National Interagency Fire Center on September 19. The Lonesome Fire was the larger of the two, at an estimated 15,500 acres; the Rattle Complex was only slightly smaller, at 14,227 acres.
