Wildfires in Georgia – Satellite Image


About a dozens large fire (outlined in red) were burning in southeastern Georgia on March 25, 2011 when MODIS on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured the above image. “The U.S. Forest Service identified the fires as being the Sessom Community Fire and the Elm Church Road Fire. They were among at least 11 large fires burning in Georgia on March 25. The Elm Church Road fire burned 2,000 acres on March 24, threatening the town of Cogdell, said the Georgia Forestry Commission. The fire was clearly still large the next day, when this image was taken. Georgia’s governor declared a state of emergency in the counties where the two large fires were burning.” Source: NASA-EO.   Click image to enlarge. Download larger image (3 MB, JPEG).
