Sources: City of Banning, Ventura County Fire Department, Geomac, CAL FIRE. Graphics reporting by Tia lai, Les Dunseith and Raoul Ranoa. Note: The perimeter outline of the Springs fire is based on detectable fire activity at the time of a satellite overpass, which is characterized at 1km spatial resolution using the latest version of the MODIS Active Fire Product algorithm. A detected fire does not necessarily mean that the entire area represented by the 1km pixel is on fire. A detection may be the result of intense fire activity covering a small fraction of the pixel area or fire activity occurring over a broader area.
