Rough Fire, California, 2015

California's Rough Fire has grown to 97,884 acres making it currently the largest active fire in California. The biggest obstacle to overcome in fighting this fire is the weather. Hot, dry conditions continue in the area making it difficult to suppress the blaze. Air quality is poor with some areas actually listed as hazardous. The winds continue to bring the smoke uphill by day and downhill by night. The terrain also affects the smoke and inversion at night keeps the smoke close to the ground rather than allowing it to drift upwards into the higher elevations. This natural-color satellite image was collected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Terra satellite on September 07, 2015. Actively burning areas, detected by MODIS's thermal bands, are outlined in red.
