This image of the Carr and Ferguson wildfires in California was taken aboard the International Space Station by European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst on August 3rd. The Carr Fire, which was first reported July 23rd, has burned more than 261 square miles (676 sq. km) in Shasta and Trinity counties and is currently the sixth-most destructive fire in California’s history. The Ferguson Fire began July 13th and has since burned 147 square miles (382 sq. km) in the Sierra and Stanislaus National Forests. Both fires have been attributed to warming temperatures and unprecedented dryness.
