CampFire5

infrared light penetrates smoke to reveal burn area

Short-wave infrared (red) captured by Landsat 8 shows the full extent of the actively burning area of the Camp Fire four hours after it started. The red patches are fires that leapfrogged in front of the primary burn front, which was growing at a rate of approximately 5 km per hour. (Earth Engine image by Jeff Chambers)
