How to see almost real time map of fire on Google Earth.

  • Download Google Earth here: http://earth.google.com/
  • Then navigate to this link: http://activefiremaps.fs.fed.us/kml/conus.kmz
  • And open the file using Google Earth.
  • It overlays the fire data fromthe USDA forest service with a satellite view of San Diego.
  • You cantype in your home address in the top left bar to locate your home.
  • Left clicking on the "CONUS MODIS Fire Detections and Current NIFCLarge Wildland Fire Incidents" indicates the time effective 12amtonight, but it seems pretty accurate.

Thank you Kim! This is a great service to the community!! I've been trying to find such a map via the UT news website and it's been USELESS.
You Rock!

Thank you! Any word on the area north and west of Lake Hodges? They evacuated Harmony Grove. Any word on the area a little west of that? I did the google earth but it is too old....still useful though.

Thanks for posting all the useful links to help out the many San Diegans affected by the fire. My company Travature.com has had to shut down our office in Sorrento Valley due to the fires and while working remotely we have created a mashup with constantly updated maps, fire news, pictures and video.

I hope it is of use, take good care San Diego.

Wow. The maps really give you an idea of how wide spread the fires really are.

Crazy stuff. Wish you all the best...
