As wildfires continue to burn in California, new satellite photos show the massive scale of the deadly Camp Fire that has devastated the state's northern town of Paradise.

The new wildfire photos, taken Friday (Nov. 9) by DigitalGlobe's WorldView 3 satellite, show striking views of the Camp Fire as it continues to grow in northern California.

Natural-color satellite photos show thick smoke from the fires around Paradise other nearby towns.

Other views taken with WorldView-3's shortwave infrared instrument, which can peer through the smoke, reveal the fire lines as the wildfire spreads.

"As you will see in the images, the wildfires are extensive and spreading through the area," DigitalGlobe representatives said in a statement.
