Here are some photos The Atlantic recently posted of the wildfires in the western U.S.:
“Angeles National Forest firefighters make their way into a brush fire spread out over an area of more than 500 acres (2 square km) at Los Padres National Forest in California, on June 16, 2012. The fire started on Saturday afternoon in the hills of the forest between the cities of Frazier Park and Ojai.”
“This image from the Expedition 31 crew aboard the International Space Station shows the smoke and some flames associated with wildfires in the Southwest, with the lights of the El Paso, Texas at center left. In the foreground, a Russian Soyuz spacecraft is docked to the station.”
