NASA posts satellite photos of Springs fire damage

NASA has published satellite images taken after the explosive Springs fire burned through 28,000 acres in Ventura County over the last week. The photos show a massive burn scar through much of the county, after the fire scorched a path from Highway 101 west to Point Mugu State Park and Pacific Coast Highway. 

For comparison, NASA posted an image of the same area of California taken in 2010 without the burn scars.
