This map shows all large, active fires in the Western United States, according to data from the National Interagency Coordination Center. Note: The map does not include some fires burning in Alaska.
Note: This map is based on official fire mapping sources that show rough footprints of actively burning wildfires. Perimeter updates take at least several hours to produce and may be based on satellite heat detection, which is approximate. Zooming into specific locations may produce misleading information. The Times map requires manual updates, which may be intermittent, so people in need of urgent information about road closures and evacuations are advised to keep abreast of communications from fire officials.
