On July 31, 2003, Ikonos captured this high-resolution image of southwestern British Columbia?s Chilko Lake Fire still smoldering. Surrounded by a large purplish-gray burned area, an isolated area of green vegetation (center) is harboring several actively burning areas, from which smoke plumes drift eastward.
