USA – July 23rd, 2012

Smoke from a rabid brush fire in the rural Niobrara River valley of Nebraska, bordering South Dakota, can be seen in the lower half of this image. The fire is being referred to as the Fairfield Creek Fire. Visible in the upper half of the image is the snakelike Lake Oahe, in South Dakota.

An overnight aerial survey using infrared technology provided officials with an updated estimate of about 50,000 acres burned, compared with previous estimates approaching 100,000 acres. However, winds gusting to 30 mph are expected to fan the flames.
