Fires in Oregon

Fires in Oregon

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.
