Smoke From Huge Walmart Fire Seen From Space

A huge fire at a Walmart distribution center in Plainfield, Indiana, emitted a plume of smoke so vast it could be seen from space. 

The billowing black smoke could be seen for miles around the 1.2-million-square-feet site and was picked up by a weather satellite as hundreds of firefighters tackled the blaze.
