From the picture above, you can see that there the 13" has one Processing Fan and 15" has two. The more graphics and program or apps you are using, the more heat is generated. When more heat is generated, the fan speeds up to help and cool down the unit.
There are case where unit goes as high as 100ºC. well if your is under warranty, best to bring it down to Apple services center. If its out of warranty, well you can always drill holes just like this mac below.

It does work and help the heat escape better. Don't try to this at home unless you dare. Another method you can used is using Mac Fan Control. Monitor, adjust and control your Macbook Fan speed.
