Smoke from the Canadian forest fire is visible from space
The smoke from the large forest fire raging in Alberta, Canada, is seen from space, writes the British astronaut Tim Peake on Twitter.

Peake, who was sent up to the International Space Station in December last year, said that the smoke from the fire covers large parts of North America and stretches all the way to the Atlantic coast.

The heavy smoke from the huge fire is now more of a concern than the fire itself. The smoke deteriorates the air quality in and around several communities in the neighboring province of Saskatchewan, writes

The affected communities are located up to 100 km from the huge fire raging around Fort McMurray in Alberta.

Even in Saskatchewan, several fires are raging, but none as extensive as the one ravaging in Alberta. No buildings in Saskatchewan are currently threatened by the fire.
