[UPDATED With Easier to Use Information] Lightning Fire Maps


Here are the Cal Fire maps indicating where fires have been located. We’re crowd-sourcing this. Add analysis and information in the comment section. Try to be as factual as possible. We’ll add confirmed information to the main lightning fire page here.

The map to the left shows the fires near Blocksburg. The flames represent a confirmed fire. The number one is for our area and then the next numbers indicate which fire it is in the order it was discovered. So, 1.32 is the thirty-second fire found in our area. According to these maps, there are at least 58 confirmed fires. We believe because of scanner traffic there are over 60 in Southern Humboldt alone. This does not include Trinity fires. Some have been extinguished.
