Is your home at high risk of a wildfire?
Use this map to find out

By Ben Welsh and Doug Smith

More than 1.1 million California buildings, roughly 1 in 10 in the state, lie within the highest-risk fire zones in maps drawn by the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

The risk maps, drawn by state scientists in 2007, are created by a computerized model that considers terrain, vegetation and the location of past fires.

To find out if you live a risky area, search your address. The state's 8,900
very severe hazard zones are mapped below.
