Fire on Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia – August 6th, 201060.9N 164.2E
A wildfire in the upper part of Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula blows a thick plume of smoke to the east-northeast. West of the blaze, a river spills brown sediments into Penzhina Bay.
Visible southwest of the fire are the snow-capped peaks of the Kamchatka Range, also known as the Central Range, which runs down towards the tip of the peninsula. Several nearby volcanoes appear capped with snow or ringed by clouds.
