These images from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua and Terra satellites show a handful of fires burning in Arizona (bottom) and Utah (top). In Arizona, the Powell Fire is burning on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. In the southwest corner of Utah, the Apex Fire has burned more than 30,000 acres, and is 35 percent contained. All fire detections are marked with red dots.
