The biggest wildfire in the country is burning in northern Nevada.
The Martin Fire exploded to more than 430-thousand acres just a few days after it started. NASA says the fire is so huge that the smoke plume can be seen from space. Luckily, the inferno isn’t threatening any homes or structures and no injuries while fighting it have been reported.
Over 600 firefighters are working to keep the monster fire contained, which is 35-percent contained. One concern is the impact on wildlife. A herd of 35 wild horses was seen near the fire perimeter. Source: Reno Gazette Journal
