Wildfire in Sweden

The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured this natural-color image of a 2014 wildfire in Västmanland, Sweden, the largest wildfire Sweden has seen in four decades. Multiple smoke plumes rise from the perimeter of the fire and blow northwest in the wind. Burned forest appears brown; unaffected forests are dark green; farmland is light green; and fallow fields are tan. Hot and dry weather exacerbated the fire, stressing vegetation and priming it to burn. With a high-pressure system parked over Scandinavia, oppressive heat emerged across Sweden in July and August of 2014, bringing record or near-record temperatures to many towns and cities.
