We recognize that the novelty of these maps may have worn away, but these maps are still useful tools for anyone who wants to know just what’s burning in their area. So, in an effort to continue to bring our readers the information they need, here are the ridiculously detailed maps that were updated around 4 a.m. this morning.

The PDF maps are still located on the thumbnails at the bottom of this post, and we’ve added the over-65,000-acre Rocky Fire, which is burning in Lake, Colusa and Yolo Counties. Additionally, we’ve added links to the text below the thumbnails. These links will direct your browser to an incident page for each of the fires.

We have yet another Google Earth download that we’ve compiled for you (Click Here).

Here’s a link to Joseph Elfelt’s Google map of the fires, and here’s a link to Daniel C. Barton’s GeoMAC map.

Here are the links to our map posts from August 3 and August 4 so you can compare the fire perimeters.

Also, summaries and links to the latest fire information as it rolls out can be found here.
