This true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image shows fires (red dots) in Southeast Asia on the afternoon of March 18, 2003. Large portions of Thailand (center), Cambodia (bottom right), and Laos (upper right) are pictured in the scene. Notice the dramatic increase in fire activity as compared to the morning image from the same day.
