USA – December 13th, 2012

Several fires can be seen in the southern USA (best observed upon opening the full image). In the upper left quadrant, a fire can be seen in the Ouchita Mountains, on the northern shores of Lake Ouchita, in Arkansas. The plume of smoke from this blaze is blowing due north. In the full image, at least five other fires can be seen in and near the mountains, in both Arkansas and Oklahoma.

In the lower half of the image, three fires can be seen between Lake Sam Rayburn (left) and the Toledo Bend Reservoir (right), in eastern Texas, with two other fires visible southeast of the Toledo Bend Reservoir, west and east of the city of DeRidder, Louisiana.
