Satellite Image of California Fires Updated June 29

Click the image to enlarge or visit MODIS Rapidfire for an expanded view of this remarkable enhanced satellite image of the California fires. The fire in the lower right portion of the image is the Piute Fire, a new fire burning in Kern County.

For perspective I added an image of fires burning out of control in Russia. Not such a fuss is made of forest fires in Siberia.
