Large fires were burning across Manitoba southwest of Hudson Bay on September 9, 2003. Smoke from these fires and others farther west hangs over the northeast part of the image. Active fire detections are marked with red in this true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image taken by the Aqua satellite on September 9, 2003. Many of the fires show dark brown burn scars.
