Caption: Californian wild fires. Smoke clouds from the wild fires that raged in California, USA, in late October 2003. This image was taken from the International Space Station, which orbits at an altitude of around 400 kilometres. Strong Santa Ana winds fanned the flames, helping to spread and maintain the fires. The fires covered a wide area of southern California, and killed several people. Hundreds of homes were destroyed and a state of emergency was declared. Image taken on 26th October 2003.
