Crews gaining on huge Nevada wildfire visible from space

This July 8 satellite image from NASA’s Suomi NPP satellite shows a wildfire, shown in red, also known as the Martin Fire, in Nevada, and smoke reaching to Idaho. The NASA satellite captured infrared imaging of the fire that has burned nearly 700 square miles of mostly sage brush, grasses and rangeland, an area almost half the size of the state of Rhode Island, according to the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center.
