    1. Hello,
      We are not assigned to the Station Fire but we are following it, and have been putting together Google Maps overlays of the mapping that the geomac.usgs.gov site releases as KML files. They seem to be updating their mapping once a day.

      Here is a link to our mapping.

      Also you can view a larger map, or embed the map by going to this link and copying the code from the 'link' on the right side.

    ****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
