I’ve been trying to figure out where the fires are in relation to where my sister lives in California. I finally found some maps that show exactly where the fires are.
The Remote Sensing Application Center’s Rapid Response Fire Maps generated from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) satellite data. I found these thanks to Susan Kitchens via Doc Searls site.
From there I was able to see the nearest fire was the “Happy Fire”, um yea. Which I was able to get some details on at the Southern California Geographic Area Coordination Center Intelligence Detailed Situation Report and seems as of Saturday to be 40% contained burning only 250 acres.
