    Smoke from multiple large wildfires in Quebec, Canada, is drifting far to the south in this modis.gsfc.nasa.gov Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from July 6, 2002. Active fire detections are indicated with red dots. On Sunday, July 7, the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Center reported 7 out-of-control fires burning south of James Bay (the southern extension of Hudson Bay, seen at upper left in the image). More lightning is expected on Monday, further increasing the fire danger.

    Please note that the high-resolution scene provided here is 500 meters per pixel. For a copy of the scene at the sensor's fullest resolution, visit the rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/gallery/?2002187-0706 MODIS Rapid Response Image Gallery.
