The Kincade Fire is the biggest hell in Northern California in Sonoma County, in the heart of the wine country, while Southern California is faltering from a stream of forest fires.

The eruption, which caused October 23, has burned 77,758 hectares of land and destroyed 374 buildings, but is 84 percent from November 5.

The latest image highlights an area around the city of Healdsburg, where more than 11,000 people live.

The "scar" extends for miles and parts are still burning – these hot spots are displayed in yellow.

Other photos taken by NASA's Terra and a privately owned satellite were released in October and showed the fire in full force when flames had flooded 20,000 hectares in less than 48 hours.

Images from the WorldView-3 satellite, which was also released last month, caught the fire from space. The images emphasized burnt vegetation in various vineyards in Geyersville and around the River Rock Casino

Photos from the WorldView-3, which emphasized the western edge of the fire in natural colors and shortwave infrared images, gave some of the greatest details of the burnt vegetation.

About 3,000 firefighters worked around the clock in October to extinguish the fire and satellites captured the destruction from space.

The Terra satellite from NASA captured the image on October 24 using the MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) instrument on the Terra satellite.

It has defined the fire zone that is located in the scenic wine country of Northern California and has evacuated more than 2,000 people so far.

Images from the WorldView-3 satellite also captured the flames from space.

The photos show the western edge of the Kincade fire as it burns close to Geyserville, which uses shortwave infrared sensors to show where the fire has burned near the city.

They also emphasize burnt vegetation in various vineyards in Geyersville and around the River Rock Casino.

The eastern edge of the fire burned in more sparsely populated mountain areas and various active fire spots are visible.

The low humidity and wind in the area contributed to the rapid movement of the fire, as it burned through about 10,000 acres within hours – some gusts of wind had been reported at a maximum of 70 mph.

Although the fire is now reasonably contained, the outbreak is still unknown and is being investigated.

The low humidity and wind in the area contributed to the rapid movement of the fire, as it burned out around 10,000 hectares in just a few hours last month. Some gusts of wind were reported at a maximum of 70 mph. Shown is an image made with the WorldView-3 satellite

Another fire broke out north of Los Angeles on Halloween night that burned thousands of acres and forced countless residents to evacuate their homes.

The so-called Maria Fire has spread to 8,730 hectares, with zero containment, according to Cal Fire, the state's fire fighting agency.

It broke out on top of South Mountain, just south of Santa Paula in Ventura County, just after 6 p.m. and was en route to Somis and Saticoy, two small farming towns, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Authorities ordered evacuations for around 8,000 people in an area, the fire department said.
