Nearly 3200 people were ordered from their homes today in the Kelowna area as winds kicked up the huge Okanagan Mountain Park fire in British Columbia. The huge fire, which now covers almost 23,000 hectares, destroyed 238 homes on the southern outskirts of Kelowna about two weeks ago. At one point, nearly 30,000 people were forced out, about one-third of the city‘«÷s population. The ASTER image covers an area of 51.5 x 53.8 km, and was acquired September 2, 2003. The image is a simulated true color composite, with the active fires highlighted in red from ASTER‘«÷s infrared bands. This image is located at 49.9 degrees north latitude, 119.4 degrees west longitude.
