Two Significant Wildfires

The Brian Head fire in Utah is the largest wildfire burning in the country - photo above shows smoke plume yesterday. Map below shows burn area in red - fire is now over 50,000 acres.

Radar image from southwest Utah below shows the smoke echoes from the fire just northeast of the radar.

The Goodwin fire (above) is burning south of Prescott, Arizona, and is expanding rapidly today, current size of burn not known exactly. Satellite image below shows the smoke plume at 01:30 pm MST this afternoon (north-central part of image).

Radar image of the Goodwin smoke plume from Flagstaff radar (above) at 01:20 pm. The channel two image with bright white fire enhancement (below) shows the active portions of both fires at 02:30 pm today. Fire weather situation remains critical over much of the Southwest.
