USA - June 7th, 2012

Smoke from the Whitewater-Baldy Complex fire in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico, USA, blows towards the northeast. Slowly but surely, crews are making progress on the largest wildfire in the state’s history, and the blazeĀ is now 30 percent contained. The lightning-sparked fire has burned more than 263,000 acres. Dry conditions across the state are making it prone to wildfires; in fact, several additional blazes can be seen to the south of the Gila Wilderness, near the bottom edge.
