Satellites watch devastating fires blaze across northern New Mexico


Devastating wildfires in New Mexico fueled by high winds are visible from space.

Fresh satellite images from Maxar Technologies caught a portion of the 200,000 burning acres associated with the Calf Canyon and Hermits Peak fires, east of Santa Fe. On Monday (May 9), the New York Times listed this set of New Mexico blazes as the largest active wildfire in the United States; according to a collection of state agencies, the fire was nearly 30% contained as of May 13.
