Fawn Peak Complex Fire, Washington

This series of Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images from the Aqua and Terra satellites shows the Fawn Peak Complex Fire in Washington in July 2003. The Fawn Peak Compmlex is the largest cluster of red dots in the images. This complex consisted of three fires—the Fawn Peak, Farewell Fire, and Sweetgrass Fire—that were started by lightning on June 29, 2003. By July 16, the Fawn Peak and Sweetgrass Fires were under control, but the Farewell Creek Fire continues to grow rapidly in the steep, dry, and rugged terrain of the Pasayten Wilderness in north-central Washington, right near the Canadian Border. The fire had grown to more than 60,000 acres by July 27.

Fires in Arizona and New Mexico

Twenty miles north of Tucson, Arizona, the Aspen Fire raged through the Coronado National Forest in June and July 2003. The fire began on June 17, 2003, and over the next few weeks grew to more than 40,000 acres. Hundreds of homes and businesses in communities on Mount Lemmon were burned, and hundreds of people have been evacuated from the area as fire fighters struggle to contain the blaze in difficult terrain under hot, dry, windy conditions. In these Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images from the Terra (top) and Aqua (bottom) satellites between mid-June and July 2003, several fires have been detected across the Southwest and are marked with red dots. The Aspen Fire, south or southwest of center in most images, has the largest smoke plume of all the fires. The grayish patch to the southwest of that fire is the city of Tucson.
