Arizona Forest Fire became the largest in the United States after it doubled in size in recent days.
The fire in Arizona is currently the largest active fire in the United States, and after increasing the burning area, it has become noticeable even from orbit. A raging forest fire burning northeast of Phoenix, Arizona, caused the mass evacuation of local residents.
Tonto National Forest officials said Tuesday that the fire, dubbed the Bush Fire, spanned 89,059 acres, localized at only 5%. It is blazing since June 13th. The cause of the fire was human activity, local rescuers say.
Satellite imagery released by NASA on Wednesday shows a “scar” from Bush Fire on Earth.
