Rain made the vegetation thick along time ago which made fuel for the fire and then it dried out with the drought and caused the fires. When rain comes again vegetation will start to grow again and build up again.

ISS has an orbit between 171 and 286 miles. That effect depends on lenses used normally 800mm or higher
