This is a quantitative assessment for the Carmel fires which broke out south of Haifa, Israel on 2 December 2010 and were largely extinguished on the morning of 6 December. This assessment provides the extent of fires detected by MODIS Aqua and Terra satellites of NASA. MODIS fire detections are provided by UMD FIRMS. MODIS detections likely indicate active fires occurring within a square kilometre area (pixel). Analysis of the detections indicate rapidly spreading fires occurring on 2 December and continuing on 3 December, with the most sustained reduction in fires found after the Terra satellite overpass on the morning of 4 December. No fires were detected in the area by 5 December as they did not meet the detection threshold of MODIS.
