Smoke from the Thomas Fire

In Southern California, wildfires continue to burn. On December 14, 2017, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite acquired a natural-color image of smoke billowing from the Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. By December 15, the fire had charred 252,500 acres (102,200 hectares or 400 square miles). That made it the fourth largest fire in California history.
