Pinecam Fire Info Page
A Work in Progress

The intent of this page is to bring together fire information from many sources into one place. To accomplish this, the page uses feeds and includes.

We have not had long experience with these feeds/includes so you may encounter some problems. Also, we do not have any control over the feed/include content; keeping this information up to date is up to the source. In most cases, the title of a section is a link to the source.

Please contact the Pinecam Tech Team via email at tech_support@pinecam.com or add a reply to this forum topic if you have any problems or suggestions. We would appreciate any feeds or links you think would be helpful to our community. Thank you.

Added a real time Weston Pass fire map showing the boundaries of the fire. Thank you to Joseph Elfelt for creating the map. He uses the federal data sources to create this map in real time.

The map does not show well on small devices (none of them do). To see more information about the map, click on the "menu" in the upper right corner. A full screen version of the map can be seen here.

This is so great! I've been looking at many different websites trying to find the information I'm interested in (the Weston Pass Fire, of course). Now, it's all here! I don't know how to develop programs or implement them or do whatever it is that you do to do this, but I know it must be pretty tedious work. THANK YOU!! (I hope Pinecam is paying you highest salaries of anybody here! Like, as high as $000,000 per year! :lol: )

Thank you. I also use https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/.. but you need the name of the fire, or increase the view size of the web site. So... search box, upper right corner, key in "Weston Pass" and the government (news fed from NFS) is pretty accurate.

Thanks MtRider. We do have a link to inciweb for the two fires on the page using their respective id numbers. And we did look at the inciweb feeds to see if we could use that automatically but not only were they for the nation, there was not near as much information as was on the page for each fire.

Pinecam's fire page was recommended on the Colorado Wildfires FB page.
