Where are the fires?

Want to know the location of wildfires in your area? We encourage you to explore this interactive map from the National Interagency Fire Center:

Just be sure to check the map legend, so you know what each of the icon colors and shapes represent. Most of the fires depicted in this map are small and quickly suppressed by initial attack crews.

When there is smoke in the air, and rumors start to spread, now you can be the person with accurate information. Pass it on!  

For more information about current fire activity in the Blue Mountains area, please check back in here at this blog, follow the social media feeds of land management agencies, and cross-reference the data available from the Blue Mountains Interagency Dispatch Center.

A friendly reminder: Fire danger is High to Extreme across our area. Please call 911 to report a wildfire.
