As record-breaking heat continues to scorch parts of the southwestern U.S. and Mexico, NOAA satellites are monitoring fires in the western U.S., which are sending plumes of smoke into the atmosphere.

As of July 26, 2023, a total of 39 large fires have burned 201,637 acres in nine states, including Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Idaho, Colorado, California, Texas, Montana, and Washington.

Since January, 29,118 wildfires have burned roughly 950,000 acres across the U.S., below the 10-year average of 33,520 wildfires and 3,534,123 acres burned.
