Several fires can be seen burning in the forests of California, in the wooded and mountainous areas east of the Central Valley.
The smoke visible to the north is billowing from the Lassen National Forest, where lightning has caused a complex of multiple fires.
One large blaze, called Brown Fire, is reportedly 20% contained and is affecting 1,050 acres of land, while the other fires in the complex are 2% contained and are affecting around 1,000 Acres.
Other fires can also be noted further south, in or near Yosemite National Park. The smoke from all of the blazes is blowing towards the northwest.
