The B & B Complex Fire in the Cascade Mountains of central Oregon was very active on September 4, 2003. The acreage involved grew to more than 70,000 acres and Camp Sherman and places north were evacuated. This image of the fire captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite at noon (local time) on September 4, shows the multiple actively burning sections of the fire marked in yellow.
