In the western part of the United States, wildfires have been responsible for the destruction of more than one million acres.
Officials in the state of New Mexico said that the largest active wildfire in the United States is getting close to being contained at a percentage of 50 percent.
The fire, which is now seven weeks old and has charred 312,057 acres, has been assigned to be put out by an army of over 3,000 firemen who have been given the duty.
Rainfall and cooler temperatures in recent days have made it easier for firefighters to put out the wildfires burning in Calf Canyon and Hermits Peak.
A warning has been issued by the United States Forest Service indicating that critical fire weather conditions are expected to return on Friday and last through the weekend.
