Wildland fire information sources

For those that may be curious about northern California (and other) fire activity, I am providing a few links with information.

Up to date information for federally-managed incidents is posted on Incidents posted here can be filtered by state (see the top right corner of the page). This includes maps and images from some fires as well as other public information.

The large fires immediately near me are the Chips Fire at over 44,000 acres south of Lake Almanor; the Reading Fire at over 27,000 acres that began in Lassen Volcanic National Park; and the Rush Fire at over 230,000 acres east of Susanville.

Another resource for information on Northern California information is the Northern California Geographic Area Coordination Center website. They also maintain a News and Notes page that is regularly updated.

For information on wildland fires that are managed by the State of California, the CalFire website provides a map of active and contained fires.
