Note: This map is being updated based on official fire-mapping sources, and those sources are limited when it comes to exact footprints of actively burning wildfires. There is usually a lag of half-a-day or more between perimeter updates from fire officials, and those perimeters are often based on thermal heat detection by satellites, which are highly approximated. No automated street-level data feed is available for wildfires, and viewers are advised that zooming into specific locations on the Google map will often produce misleading information. The L.A. Times map may also include some information from reporter interviews with local firefighting officials and from news releases by fire agencies. Although The Times attempts to include current road closures and evacuation areas as a reader service, the map requires manual updates, which may be intermittent, so people in affected areas are advised to keep abreast of communications from fire officials, including text-based sources such as the incident page for an individual fire.
