Caption: Forest fires, Portugal, August 2003. Satellite image of forest fires (small red spots) burning in Portugal. Land is green/brown, water is blue, and clouds are white. Forest fires devastated Portugal during a European-wide heatwave in the summer of 2003. Record-breaking temperatures in Portugal left the vegetation tinder-dry. At least 19 people died in the forest fires, and there was massive economic damage. Image taken by NASA's Terra satellite at 11:05 GMT on 8 August 2003.
