Prescribed burns lit up GOES-16 imagery on April 11 in the eastern half of Kansas. The 2 km 3.9 um IR channel shows an abundance of hotspots across the region during the day. The 0.5 km 0.64 um visible channel reveals widespread smoke. Ozone alerts were issued for parts of Kansas given the increased particulate matter in the air.
