Northeastern Russia has been experiencing record-breaking heat and drought, resulting in hundreds of intense wildfires throughout the taiga forests of Siberia. NASA’s Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on Suomi NPP captured amazing natural-color images of large clouds of smoke enveloping the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), while satellite data indicates several small fires burned intermittently in the area for weeks.

Sakha’s emergencies ministry stated that there are more than 250 fires burning across roughly 5720 square kilometers (2,210 square miles) of land as of July 5. Regional authorities are attempting to extinguish dozens of fires per day, but the situation remains “difficult” and they expect to battle large fires for weeks. Thick smoke has also occasionally enveloped Yakutsk, the largest city in Sakha, along with other parts in the region.
