Biscuit Fire, Oregon

 (JPG) Biscuit Fire, Oregon (1.64 MB) ( 2,976 x 3,942 )
In southwest Oregon, the Biscuit Fire continues to grow. This ASTER image from August 14, 2002, shows the pillars of smoke arising from the fires. Active fire areas are in red. More than 6,000 fire personnel are assigned to the Biscuit Fire alone, which was 390,276 acres as of Thursday morning, August 15, and only 26 percent contained. Among the resources threatened are thousands of homes, three nationally designated wild and scenic rivers, and habitat for several categories of plants and animals at risk of extinction. Firefighters currently have no estimate as to when the fire might be contained. This image is located at 42.3 degrees north latitude and 123.9 degrees west longitude.
