Severe fire weather was hampering firefighters’ efforts to keep bush fires under control in Northern Territory in early October 2007. Bush fires that had been burning for several weeks in remote areas were starting to approach property, according to news reports from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. This image of northern Australia from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite shows the location and extent of fires (outlined in red) on September 30, 2007.
