Largest wildfire in New Mexico history is still burning

New Mexico is currently battling the largest fire in the state’s history.

The Calf Canyon Fire is also the largest fire in the U.S. right now. It has been burning for a month and has merged with an escaped prescribed burn. That fire complex has now burned more than 300,000 acres.

A storm chaser says the fire is going quote “nuclear”. The plume is up to 35,000 feet and the rotation is being picked up on radar. The governor is working closely with the Biden Administration to help the area recover.

The New Mexico National Guard shared this picture on Twitter of soldiers and airmen transporting more than 32,000 gallons of water to firefighters battling the Calf Canyon Fire.
