East Troublesome Fire Spreads to the Rockies

East Troublesome Fire Spreads to the Rockies

Within ten days, the East Troublesome fire had burned through more than 190,000 acres (77,000 hectares) and had become Colorado’s second largest fire (by area) on record. East Troublesome experienced extensive growth on October 21, growing from 30,000 acres to 170,000 acres in about 24 hours. On October 22, 2020, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured these natural-color (left) and false-color (right) images of the East Troublesome fire. The snow also slowed the Cameron Peak fire, located about 10 miles north of East Troublesome. U.S. Forest Service officials estimate East Troublesome and Cameron Peak will be fully contained by early November.
