Slow Burn in the Golden State

There is still no light at the end of the tunnel for fire-besieged Northern California. According to reports, there are still over 1,000 wildfires burning in the region with little hope for improvement in the near future. This NASA photo was taken June 24th. Over 1,400 square kilometers of land have already been burnt, and there are more than 19,000 firefighters on hand, many from around the country.
