Here’s a Map of All the Fires Are Burning in Northern California

After a series of lightning storms lit remote fires throughout Northern California, it’s been difficult to follow exactly whats going on in the region from a wildfire standpoint. Many of the fires are small, but some are beginning to grow and are managed as one large complex fire.

In Del Norte County, the Smith River Complex stands as the state’s second-largest wildfire this season, having devoured nearly 50,000 acres as of August 23, Wednesday, with no containment achieved so far.

Areas like Somes Bar, Weitchpec, Hoopa, Willow Creek, and Gasquet faced warnings of hazardous or very unhealthy air quality starting from August 21. However, air quality witnessed significant improvements by the following day. Daily wildfire smoke forecasts are now being issued by the North Coast air quality agency.

There are also some fires burning in Siskiyou County, the Sierra, and Mendocino National Forest. See the interactive map below to see the fires burning throughout NorCal:
