NASA Earth Observatory: King Fire in California, False-Colour Infrared image

On Sept. 19, 2014, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on the Landsat 8 satellite captured these images of the King fire in Eldorado National Forest

In the false-colour image, burned forest appears red; unaffected forests are green; cleared forest is beige; and smoke is blue. 

As of Sept. 23, the blaze had charred 36,320 hectares (89,571 acres).
