Out of control Arctic wildfires burning at rate unseen in at least 10,000 years, scientists warn

Millions of hectares of forests across the planet’s northernmost regions are on fire, with firefighters struggling to battle the blazes, often caused by lightning strikes, and often taking place in remote and uninhabited areas which are difficult to access, scientists have warned, ONA reports quoting sputniknews.

Pierre Markuse, a German satellite photography expert, has been uploading and enhancing images taken from NASA satellites, showing hundreds of raging blazes wreaking havoc across vast areas of the northern hemisphere.
