Camp Fire (aka Paradise Fire)
The Camp Fire is one of the deadliest in California state history, and with hundreds of Paradise residents still unaccounted for, officials are worried that the death toll will climb. It has burned 125,000 acres and is only 30 percent contained. Fire officials indicated that 6,453 homes and 260 commercial structures have been destroyed.
Imagery from the European Space Agency’s Sentinel satellite shows the devastation. A “false color” sensor combination highlights healthy vegetation in bright green, while a maroon burn scar can be seen surrounding Paradise. To the east, the active fire line is visible in bright orange.
