I am looking for an online, up-to-date map that shows each fire in the US with information on it. I know it exists, but can't find it after much trying and many various searches.

Colorado Division of Homeland Security - Department of Public Safety

Colorado Daily Status Report

On the right had side is a map of current fires. If you click on the left most icon (a box with an arrow pointing right), the anems of the Current Wildfires 100+ acres will show.

I sure would like to find a feed with lat/lon of current Colorado Wildfires, controlled burns, and fire strictions.

edited to add: oh, you're look for the whole US. sorry, this is just Colorado.

Actually, just the western states. Thanks for the link! I would have never thought of Homeland Security.

Thanks very much for the links. That's exactly what I was looking for. There is a fire 40 miles south west of Telluride I want to monitor closely. My beloved San Juans are at very high risk, this year, even high than we are.

What about a smoke pattern map showing where wildfire smoke is the worst and where it's drifting towards. I found the perfect one, but it was a beta-version and hadn't been updated for a month.

InciWeb - Incident Information

Code:
InciWeb is an interagency all-risk incident information management system. The system was developed with two primary missions:

    Provide the public a single source of incident related information
    Provide a standardized reporting tool for the Public Affairs community

A number of supporting systems automate the delivery of incident information to remote sources. This ensures that the information regarding active incidents is consistent, and the delivery is timely.

I use this on occasion, ordinormally when I want something non-USA based. Doesn't always have what I'm looking for of course, but it is interesting to check out.
