The Sensebaugh Fire was reported to have started on 7/11/13 and have a high growth potential (inciweb.org). This could be an area to watch with the VIIRS Day-Night Band (DNB) Radiance RGB Composite (below) in the coming days. No bright fire (would be yellow, like the cities) is seen in the image, and there is a large amount of cloud cover (blue shades). SPoRT and CIRA are partnering with NWS users to evaluate this type of product in night-time operations.
