July 22, 2014 - Wildfires in Oregon
Dry conditions have made 2014 another busy year for wildfires in the western United States. Lightning started separate fires near Malheur Lake in east-central Oregon on July 14, 2014. These Landsat images were acquired on July 1, 2014, before the fires began and again on July 17, 2014, three days after the fires started. Bright orange shows where the fires were burning at the time of the July 17 image.
