Caption: Satellite view showing the plumes of smoke (lower centre) from the wildfires affecting the moorland in Lancashire, England. The smoke can be seen drifting towards the Irish sea. The wildfires first broke out on June 24th 2018 and this satellite image was taken on June 30th 2018 at 11:04 UTC. Hundreds of firefighters were deployed to tackle the blaze and a particular prolonged spell of dry weather was a contributing factor of the large scale of the wildfires. The satellite sensor used was Modis.
